Free Seminar by Robert Geffner on Child Custody Evaluations

March 12, 2014 at 1:57 PM

The procedures, assessment, and ethical practice for child custody disputes when there are allegations of child maltreatment, intimate partner violence and/or exposure to domestic violence are discussed. Distinguishing between abuse, high conflict, alienation, estrangement, and rejection are presented. These are very difficult and complex cases from mental health/social work, criminal justice, and legal perspectives.

Appropriate investigative techniques and common errors that often are made in these cases are presented. The myth of 'parental alienation syndrome' that is often alleged in these cases is discussed, along with ways to avoid common pitfalls. Recommendations for custody and visitation when abuse or high conflict has occurred are provided. Case examples are shown.

This seminar runs from 9:30am - 12pm on the 16th of April at the University of Auckland Tāmaki Campus.
