A DVD program which provides the unique opportunity to hear, first-hand, from adult children of divorce about the impact their parents’ separation had on their lives, from childhood through to marriage and parenthood is now available. We explore what happens to the children of divorce when the file is closed, and the family moves on to transition and rebuild. What really transpires in these new family dynamics and how it affects children’s perspectives on their own relationships?
Learn from our panel of seasoned professionals on how to screen potential new clients early, establish the rules, boundaries and expectations at the outset and in the retainer agreement, prevent, prepare for and manage formal complaints and build a thriving practice by maximizing profit and minimizing client dissatisfaction.
If your organization is planning a program for your community of professionals, you might consider inviting the AFCC-O to participate in your event. In September 2017 Board members Dr. Dan Ashbourne, Brian Burke and Justice Gerri Wong, together with Katherine Kavassalis of the OCL, Mary-Anne Popescu of OAFM and Kathleen Chapman of Mediation North, took our Adult Children of Divorce DVD on the road to Thunder Bay for membership outreach, co-hosting a community program with Lakehead University Law School. Other community events include the Windsor Roundtable Dinner series (RTDS). In November 2013, the AFCC-O paired with ADR-Link, CCFJS providing a program on Substance Use & Addications, Unique Cultural, Legal and clinical Considerations for First Nations Families at the Maawn Doosh Gumig – Aamjiwnaang First Nation Community Centre in Sarnia, ON.
