SMOKE SCREEN OR FIRE: SEXUAL ABUSE ALLEGATION IN FAMILY COURT- PART I
FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 14, 2014
8 a.m. to noon
The Minneapolis Boulevard HoteL
Some of the most difficult custody cases are often those involving allegations of sexual abuse. Abuse allegations, whether made by the child directly or by a parent or family member on his or her behalf, can result in increased involvement from a variety of professionals including law enforcement, child protective services, mental health professionals, and forensic psychologists and interviewers. For both the child and the alleged abuser, the ramifications can be dire and reach beyond questions of custody, to criminal and child protection issues. In part one of this two part series, participants will understand Minnesota’s unique history with sexual abuse assessments, and gain perspective on current models and best practices in evaluating sexual abuse allegations—including interviewing, medical assessments, and extended family assessments.
