This Spring, The University of Akron’s School of Law and Center for Family Studies, Akron Bar Association and other community organizations will be sponsoring a professional interdisciplinary seminar on the topic of Co-Parenting and High Conflict: Arguing, Alienation and Angst, on Thursday, March 28, 2019 at the C. Blake McDowell Law Center. The program seeks to provide information about the current state of research and practice in a variety of disciplines, with the end goal of setting a community agenda as to how we can effectively meet the needs of practitioners and families in our community dealing with high-conflict parenting situations.
This will be the eighth in a series of Families and Communities Interdisciplinary Seminars, which is an ongoing collaboration of the Akron Bar Association, University of Akron’s School of Law and Center for Family Studies, and community agencies. The goal of this seminar series is to enhance professional understanding of issues involving families for a multi-disciplinary audience.
Bill Eddy, the co-founder and Training Director of High Conflict Institute, will be speaking at this year’s seminar, along with many other local and regional experts and practitioners who work with families and children in high conflict parenting situations. We are hopeful to have an audience of approximately 150 professionals, including lawyers, mental health professionals, social service workers and government officials that can learn from each other as to how we can improve our response to high-conflict families in our region.
