AFCC Regional Conference

AFCC Regional Conference

Presented By: Association of Family and Conciliation Courts (AFCC)

About the Event
Separating and divorcing families bring many types of conflict to the legal system. Often, the key to identifying a solution begins with understanding what lies beneath the surface. Trauma, addiction, substance abuse, alienation, and family violence are just a few of the many underlying issues that family court professionals may uncover in highly conflicted matters. The AFCC Regional Conference will bring world leaders together for pre-conference institutes, workshops, and plenary sessions that will address practice skills, professional issues, and advanced theoretical applications. The conference is designed for judges, lawyers, mediators, custody evaluators, mental health professionals, and any professional who works with separating and divorcing families—especially high conflict families. Register today! You do not want to miss this fantastic program.

Saturday, November 4, 2017 | 8:30 AM - 10:00 AM CDT

The challenges impacting high conflict and troubled family court users often touch multiple professionals before landing in front of judicial officers. What issues do judicial officers find most troublesome? How do they glean information and expertise to make decisions? Are there creative methods to resolve issues in collaboration with other family court professionals? This session will feature interactive discussion among experienced judicial officers who will share how they address the most difficult issues they experience.
