AFCC 54th Annual Conference - Turning the Kaleidoscope of Family Conflict into a Prism of Harmony

Family law-related conflict arises at many levels, including debates over legislative and policy initiatives, disputed research findings, professional practice disagreements and, most importantly, conflict between family members related to parenting time, child support, and parenting during and after separation and divorce. Although prisms of harmony will not always prevail, it is incumbent upon us to search for collaborative and effective means of resolving these conflicts. Join AFCC in Boston as we explore opportunities to resolve conflict—both our clients’ and our own!

Basic Interdisciplinary Collaborative Practice Training

Collaborative Practice (the newer approach to family law) differs from litigation, pre-trial settlement, and even divorce mediation. It involves a Collaborative team approach in which three types of professionals join forces-without reliance on threats, demands, or the court-to support a couple through the divorce process and toward a new post-divorce relationship and way of life. Attorneys, mental health professionals, and financial professionals interested in Collaborative Practice and who attend this seminar will learn the important, yet subtle ways in which each of their roles in a Collaborative divorce differs from their more traditional roles.
