Description
This intermediate workshop presents the current research and literature about six critical issues facing child custody evaluators and those working with custody litigants. These critical issues include: the current application of Daubert, the recent research and literature about removal/relocations cases, maltreatment (domestic violence/abuse and physical and sexual abuse), the reformulation of alienation, appropriate psychological testing, and current thinking about attachment theory. This workshop can also be of value to nonforensic practitioners who work with custody litigants in their therapy practice.
Learning Objectives
1. Assess Daubert and how it affects forensic work, therapy, testimony and ethical behavior.
2. Apply the current criteria used to determine if a parent should be allowed to make a distant move with the children post divorce.
3. Describe how domestic violence/abuse and intimate partner violence affects divorce cases.
4. Articulate the current thinking about alienation/estrangement and its relationship to attachment issues.
5. Recognize which psychological tests can still be utilized and which should not be used based on Daubert.
6. Utilize the current application of attachment theory in custody cases.
7. Apply the 2002 APA Code of Ethics and the recent specialty guidelines to the above-stated issues.
