Conference Learning Objectives:

  1. Explain the complexities of psychological trauma in the dissolution of families, and how to identify its symptoms.
  2. Demonstrate how psychological trauma can be identified in families, well before family dissolution (intergenerational transmission of trauma, cumulative trauma within a particular family member, and past and present trauma within the family).
  3. Examine how racism, sexism and other forms of bias contribute to psychological stress and trauma in family members before and during family dissolution.                             
  4. Identify how the legal system and the court process unwittingly can create and/or exacerbate psychological trauma in family dissolution.
  5. Explore alternatives offered by mental health and legal professionals to help mitigate the traumatic effects that can occur in family dissolution. What Can We Do?

Attendees and speakers will receive a family study to review prior to the conference.  Reading the family study prior to the conference is essential to meaningful discussion for Panels B, C and D.
