Join us for a half-day conference presentation and discussion about these emerging topics in family law. We will discuss how children can appropriately be included in the court process and the difference between forensic interviewing and mediation. Speakers will discuss the tips for recognizing reliable forensic interviews, tips for conducting child-inclusive mediation and the traps to avoid.
Mental health professionals, attorneys, judicial officers and court staff can all benefit from learning more about how to hear the child in the manner that promotes the child’s best interests.
Speakers include: Mindy Mitnick, LP (forensic interviewing), Kirsten Lysne, PhD, LP and Peggy Cottrell, MA, LMFT (child inclusive mediation), plus a special video demonstration from Karen Irvin, PhD on what it looks like to interview the child in mediation and then present the information to the parents and the mediator in the Jen McIntosh model.
