Separation and divorce disputes can be better managed by understanding high-conflict behaviours and using advanced professional skills to manage them.
High-conflict disputes are increasing in all aspects of society, especially in separation and divorce. They often involve one or more parents, family members, friends and/or professionals with high-conflict behaviour, characterized by all-or-nothing thinking, unmanaged emotions, extreme behavior, preoccupation with blaming others, or prolonged, unresolved conflicts.
This one-day program will focus on:
Understanding personality disorders and managing potentially high-conflict people.
Four key skills for managing upset emotions, by assisting clients in analyzing their options, appropriately responding to misinformation and setting limits on misbehaviour.
Recognizing the personality patterns related to these behaviours and to understanding what to look for in one’s own client and the opposing party, with tips on presenting such cases in settlement and in court.
Methods for managing mild, moderate and severe cases of alienation in and out of court.
Treatment methods including the 'New Ways for Families' method used in the U.S. and Canada.
Who Should Attend
This one-day workshop is specifically designed for family law professionals and support staff.
