In addition, information travels quickly on the Internet, so it’s important to know at least as much as your prospects and clients can discover on their own.
At ParentalAlienationEducation.com, we will help you keep pace with frequent changes and stay abreast of current information about issues related to high-conflict divorce, intrastate reforms to divorce education programs, and news that is shaping the future of your practice.
Client retention and client referrals favor lawyers who have an updated understanding of the DSM-5—you need to be familiar with new diagnostic codes that can affect each case.
The American Psychiatric Association published its fifth edition of The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, now simply referred to as the DSM-5, on May 18, 2013. This long-awaited update includes new diagnostic codes for conditions including Child Psychological Abuse. These new codified conditions have a childhood etiology linked to toxicity in high-conflict divorce. Mental health and family law professionals need to learn about and understand these codified conditions, because children diagnosed with these conditions will need practitioners who can provide appropriate treatment. These matters are already coming to the attention of the courts.
Advancing your education in psycho-legal issues will earn you the respect of your colleagues and judges. In addition, being knowledgeable about the therapeutic interventions not understood by most other legal professionals will help you develop more effective legal strategies.
The family law lawyer is often challenged by difficult cases involving disputes over custody, visitation, supervised access, psychological evaluations, and psychiatric assessments. You work with a wide variety of professionals like mediators, parenting coordinators, guardians ad litem, visitation supervisors, child protection agencies, and other professionals and experts. Knowing which professional to turn to for help and when can be crucial in every case.
Especially important are mental health professionals, who are required by their professional associations to work only within their areas of expertise. For this reason, you need to understand the complex issues involved in the selection of a qualified custody evaluator or the right therapist for counseling.
Competitive family law lawyers value the information we provide at ParentalAlienationEducation.com because our online resources help them make better-informed, more intelligent decisions that positively affect the outcomes for their clients.
ParentalAlienationEducation.com gives you online access to family law conferences and training videos you can’t get anywhere else.
Family law lawyers recognize the need for continuing education, even when they can’t take the time to attend important conferences of real interest. Much as you might like to attend, taking time away from your practice (plus covering costly travel expenses) makes it very difficult to do. We offer alternatives to attending conferences, and we provide options for obtaining necessary continuing educational training from the comfort of your own home or office and on your own schedule.
In addition, we provide you with the most contemporary social science and legal research on issues like parental alienation, evidence-based treatment programs, enmeshment, and literature on a wide range of topics relating to high conflict family law cases, including Daubert-relevant cases.
In short, we offer a brand of litigation support that sets us apart from everyone else, in part because we use powerful Intranet technology that enables you to access psycho-legal information that is catalogued and gives you the flexibility to access it anytime. That’s a distinct asset that will improve your practice.
At www.ParentalAlienationEducation.com, meeting your continuing educational requirements isn’t just a goal, it’s our number-one priority.
