Stable Paths recently served as a Platinum Sponsor of the Association of Family and Conciliation Courts (AFCC) 54th Annual Conference, “Turning the Kaleidoscope of Family Conflict into a Prism of Harmony” May 31-June 3, 2017 at the Sheraton Boston Hotel, Boston, MA.
Stable Paths team members also presented the following sessions at the conference:
- Applying the Kübler-Ross stages of grief to high conflict divorce, Presented by Rebecca Bailey, PhD, Jamie Isicoff, JD, Abigail Judge, PhD.
Family law professionals should have a thorough understanding of the immense impact of grief and loss on the family system. This workshop proposes a model for treatment that presents an adaptation to Kubler-Ross’s grief wheel for those who interact with families involved in high conflict divorce.
- Hidden in plain sight: Human trafficking in family and juvenile courts, Presented by Abigail Judge, Ph.D. and Jennifer Murphy, PhD
Child sex trafficking is increasingly common among United States youth and this crime is often embedded in the context of other matters that present in family and juvenile courts, such as custody, care and protection, and status offenses. Awareness about the extent and scope of the issue in family court is very limited, however. This presentation will introduce this issue to family court professionals and discuss implications for the work of mental health professionals, evaluators and the judiciary.
