Program Description:

Despite more than 40 years workshops and trainings, Guidelines, and journal articles related to Parenting Plan Evaluations, many evaluators still have considerable challenges understanding this challenging work. In this workshop, the presenter, who has more than 40 years of experience with these cases, will identify good forensic evaluation practice, as well as provide examples of defective work, biased evaluations, and fatal flaws to help participants use the new AFCC Guidelines and understand ways to improve the quality of their work.

Goals & Objectives:

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

  1. Identify three challenges to best practice in parenting plan evaluations.
  2. Apply the principles learned from the Boy Scout Oath to best practices of a parenting plan evaluator.
  3. Integrate the AFCC Parenting Plan Evaluation Guidelines, CA Rules of Court, CA Family Code, CA Appellate cases, and Board of Psychology decisions into an evaluator’s best practices toolbox.
