TRA 3028  Chaotic Families and Custody Disputes
Instructor—Jane H. Phillips, Ph.D., LCSW

An often overlooked area of abuse and neglect is that which occurs for children in families where parents attend to their adult relationship desires ahead of the needs of their children. This can be seen in families where parents separate or divorce; families where parents have a series of romantic relationships and particularly in families where one parent makes a concerted effort to exclude the other parent from the child’s life despite previously close relationships between parent and child when the family was together. Learn how to effectively engage with children and adults in these situations, address unresolved grief and loss related to parental separation and divorce, practical interventions for reducing parental conflict to minimize custody disputes and to address post-separation/post-divorce dynamics that maintain chaos for children.
