Jonathan Fields and Sheryl Dennis recently attended the AFCC’s 54th Annual Conference in Boston, Turning the Kaleidoscope of Family Conflict into a Prism of Harmony.
The conference featured more than 200 presenters from 12 countries with diverse topics such as family reunification, mediation, alienation, international child abduction, shared parenting, access to justice, relevant social science research, ethics and civility in legal practice, intimate partner violence, technology, custody evaluation, and much more.
The sessions brought together more than 1,000 Family law colleagues from across the globe. The conference focused on finding collaborative and effective means of resolving Family law-related conflicts from a wide range of perspectives. These types of conflicts can arise at many levels, including debates over legislative and policy initiatives, disputed research findings, professional practice disagreements, conflict between family members related to parenting time, child support, and parenting during and after separation and divorce.
