Conference Theme

There is growing concern among stakeholders in the family law community that many children and families, particularly those who come from disadvantaged backgrounds and marginalized communities, do not have access to and/or utilize the psycho-legal services needed to help them heal and move forward. Getting in early before positions harden is a critical step. Unfortunately, many children and families remain embroiled in conflict and vulnerable to toxic stress associated with litigating in family court. Families with ample resources can provide cushion but not necessarily protection from toxicity. To make matters even more complex and severe, children and families, as well as family law professionals, continue to be confronted with unique challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Now more than ever, what we need is an exchange of ideas. We, as family law professionals, need to be open to new approaches to reach those families in distress. We need to learn about and adopt practical interventions and solutions that others may have found to be effective in their local communities. Additionally, we need to engage in an ongoing discussion about the fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic, about those children and families left behind during the pandemic, and about what we as professionals can do to prevent such a crisis within a crisis in the future.
