Becoming Culturally Competent and Ethically Responsible: Beyond Basics

Presenters: Gitu Bhatia, Psy.D., Linda Bortell, Psy.D., Abbas Hadjian, Esq. and Diana Martinez, Esq.

Professionals working with families going through divorce and separation need to increase awareness and skills to be able to discern the complex aspects of culture, world views, and communication patterns of the families with whom we interact in the legal process. Participants will also learn to identify and empathize with the socio political aspects of racism, power and privilege and how these may impact issues of trust and mistrust and create barriers in the legal processes and, specifically, within the context of family law.

Modest Means Moves: Preparing For and Trying the Modest Means Move-Away Case

Presenters:
Leslie Ellen Shear, JD, CFLS, Mike J. Kretzmer, JD, CFLS, Gitu Bhatia, Psy.D.
One of the most challenging situations in Family Court is the presentation of a “move-away” case where the litigants have modest means. Judges are often confronted with poorly conducted move-away trials that do not give the Court the information necessary for wise decisions, and unduly consume court time and resources. This program will lay out how move-away cases can best be organized and presented by parties and counsel to assist the Court in developing long-distance parenting plan orders. There will also be discussion of alternatives to court resolution and how to be sensitive to cultural issues.
