UpcomingAFCC Webinar: A Safer Approach to Parenting Arrangements


  • May 15, 2018
    1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

A Safer Approach to Parenting Arrangements in Cases Involving Intimate Partner Violence

Child custody decision-making in the context of allegations of intimate partner violence can be challenging.  Family Court practitioners simultaneously seek to promote the safety and wellbeing of children and their battered parents while respecting the rights and interests of parents who are accused of DV and/or unjustifiably estranged from their children.  This workshop introduces practitioners to a four-pronged approach known as “SAFeR” which can assist in decision-making in IPV-related cases. The SAFeR approach can be utilized by any family court practitioner in order to produce safer, more workable outcomes in IPV-involved parenting disputes.

Presenter: Loretta Frederick, JD, has served as Senior Legal and Policy Advisor of the Battered Women’s Justice Project since 1996. The focus of her current work is improving the capacity of family courts to identify and account for domestic violence in child custody cases.
