Event description

Description

Working with families who are involved in child custody disputes is a sensitive and challenging endeavour for all professionals; however, the most challenging families are those considered 'high conflict'. One of the hallmarks of high conflict includes high rates of complaints to professional regulatory bodies, as family lawyers, social workers, psychologists, child protection workers, judges, mediators, police and others all have oversight as professionals.

The purpose of this conference is to discuss the various aspects of liability or complaints, whether meritorious or vexatious in nature, how to appropriately manage and respond to these false allegations. The final aspect of the day will be focussed on managing the stress related to complaints and the work with families experiencing high conflict.
