Judge Mayer was appointed to the Circuit Bench in 2002 and is currently a Circuit Judge in the UK Family Court and a tutor Judge at the Judicial College. She has authority to hear High Court cases and has sat as a Judge in the Crown (criminal) Court. Judge Mayer’s work includes all aspects of child protection including physical and sexual abuse and emotional harm arising from neglect, domestic violence, parental substance abuse and mental illness. Her judicial role also involves international private law relocation matters. Judge Mayer has provided training at Great Ormond Street Hospital and the Tavistock Institute.




Attendees at this 1 day seminar will increase their knowledge and understanding of:

  • What constitutes neglect and emotional abuse of children.
  • Assessment of the impact of these forms of abuse on a child's health and development.
  • The roles of judicial decision makers and experts in child risk matters in child protection and family law.


The seminar will conclude with an interactive panel discussion looking at the tasks and challenges of working in contexts of emotional abuse and neglect in the law, health, child protection and community settings. As well as Judge Mayer and Dr Glaser, the panel will also include Her Honour Judge Tonkin and professionals working in child protection settings.
