Program Description:

AFCC published their Guidelines for Examining Intimate Partner Violence in 2016. In 2020, California amended Section 6320 of the Family Code to include critical dynamics of coercive control, specifying a pattern of behaviors that “unreasonably interferes with a person’s free will and personal liberty”. This workshop will highlight examples from the legislation and, using the AFCC Guidelines related to IPV, outline suggestions for assessing this critical issue.

Goals & Objectives:

At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe the content of CA’s coercive control statute and applications in case law.
  2. Integrate the AFCC Guidelines in cases with allegations of IPV in parenting plan evaluation practice.
  3. Describe the importance of Implementing multiple hypotheses when appointed in such cases.
