22 Sep 2021:Working With Children & Parents in Family Law Disputes

Working with Children & Parents involved in Family Law Disputes What Every Clinical Psychologist Should Know

Dr Janina Szyndler and Mabel Hui

Online Seminar via Zoom
Wednesday, 22nd September 2021
6:30 pm to 8:00 pm


If you work with children and families, it is inevitable that at some point you will get a referral in which there is an active or brewing family law dispute. Many Psychologists try to avoid seeing these clients but sometimes these cases creep in unexpectedly.

This seminar aims to help you be prepared and understand the potential pitfalls. It will cover everything from an overview of how the family law system works, to understanding how the court considers family violence, dealing with subpoenas and some of the principals that are important to bear in mind so that your work can be effective.

There will also be opportunities to ask questions.
