Cross-discipline Collaboration Family Law Disputes

If child development sat at the heart of all family law practices, what could our work look like? How can we train our law and psychology students to become a truly collaborative workforce?

These are current questions under discussion between the Deakin University School of Law and School of Psychology.

Join us in exploring them further in an open seminar featuring research by Professor Jennifer McIntosh AM (Deakin University and Children Beyond Dispute) and Professor Amy Holtzworth-Munroe (Indiana University). Learn about the processes of child-inclusive mediation and child-focused consultation and discover how key features of shared training for law and psychology students and professionals can help to bring their disciplinary strengths together in highly-conflicted disputes between parents.

Syd Balachandran from Deakin Law Clinic will lead a panel comprised of key stakeholders from the law, psychology and the tertiary sector.
