The Membership committee has developed programs to facilitate networking and learning in innovative ways. The purpose of these programs is to provide local communities with a creative way to network and learn with colleagues in a fresh and informative manner. Addressing a wide array of topics, we extend an invitation to host an event for AFCC Ontario members and other family justice professionals in your community. Participation is stress free and easy. All you have to do is contact AFCC-O with your interest in hosting an event, and we’ll work with you to take care of the smallest of details.

Please feel free to choose from any of the following programs currently offered by AFCC-Ontario Chapter:

1. How to Build a Thriving Practice, Prevent Complaints and Feel Rewarded

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.

2. Family Law Dilemmas: Learning from Film and Discussion

Learn and debate about issues confronting our clients on a daily basis from topics such as: Parent Alienation, The Role of Parenting Coordinators, How to Tell the Children About Divorce, The Voice of the Child….and more! These issues are supported and presented by an entertaining DVD showcasing the topics creatively from pop culture through the use of movies and TV shows. How do we as professionals help better guide our clients, while remaining true to our professional ethics?

3. Adult Children of Divorce Have Their Say

A video 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 perspectives on their own relationships?
