Overcoming Barriers’ experts presented two seminars in Ohio and Minnesota this summer. In June, Hon. Lynda Munro (ret), Louise Truax, JD and Robin Deutsch, Ph.D. traveled to Ohio to present to professionals invited to a two day event by Judge Denise McColley and her family court. July saw Hon. Marge Slabach (ret), Ms. Truax and Dr. Deutsch presenting a hybrid two day presentation for AFCC Minnesota at its annual conference.
Both presentations were well received as attendees learned more about best practices for working with families in crisis and worked together through several hypothetical situations. They processed these scenarios as a team and worked on creating sample court orders based on each specific situation.
“It was like a think tank and gave us the ability to unpack and digest the material with others in the field.”
“I don’t even know where to start, honestly. This seminar was one of the best CLE’s I’ve attended in years. Such excellent information. Great practical tips, particularly about what to include in the court orders (who will do what, when it needs to be done by, measurable goals for both parents, consequences for not completing the goals satisfactorily). Thank you!”
