“I will be speaking about parenting coordination, one of the newest forms of dispute resolution in family law practice, designed specifically to assist parties, post parenting orders, to implement the parenting orders either made after a hearing or by consent,” she said.

“It is a process designed for high-conflict families but which is now gaining traction with many co-parents as a non-adversarial way for the to make the transition from intimate partners to separated co-parents.

“I will be talking about the benefits of collaborative practice for parents and children, giving some case examples, talking about how it can add to the service offering already offered by alternate dispute resolution practitioners and doing some myth busting about common misconceptions about the parenting coordination process.”


Also presenting at the half-day event will be:

  • Clinical psychologist Narelle Dickinson, of Queensland Family Support and Lotus Health and Psychology, Circle of Security Program;
  • Art therapist Karis Anders, of Relationships Australia Queensland, Child Counselling and Healing through Art Therapy; and
  • Divorce coach Marg Doherty, of Divorce Hub, The Missing Piece of the Puzzle for the Family Law Client.

The Ipswich Symposium will be held on Thursday, 21 March, from 9am to 1.30pm at Ipswich Civic Centre. Tickets here.
