As a Child protection mediation (CPM) and being trained as Mental Health Service Provider and LPC-S, I have professional experience working with high conflict separated parent is a collaborative problem solving process. This involves an impartial and neutral person who facilitates constructive negotiation and communication among parents, lawyers, child protection professionals, and possibly others, in an effort to reach a consensus regarding how to resolve issues of concern when children are alleged to be abused, neglected or abandoned. The child’s voice in the decision making process is essential and is typically presented either directly by the child or by other means, such as by an advocate for the child. I can assists parents with implementing their parenting plan and making the necessary changes needed to establish a collaborative parallel parenting partnership. I will be fully certificated in March with AFCC (Association of Family and Conciliation Courts) – the premier interdisciplinary and international association of professionals dedicated to the resolution of family conflict.
As a CPM, I will encourage constructive communication and information sharing and fosters an environment where genuine engagement and agreement is possible. As a consensual decision making process, no agreement can be reached unless all the involved parties agree. In addition to reaching important decisions regarding children and families, CPM can lead to a greater sense of teamwork and a greater understanding and ownership of resulting agreements by all involved.
AFCC members are the association’s best and most important resource. The AFCC membership network provides an international network of collegiality, support and timely access to information and resources. AFCC members gather, in person and electronically, to exchange information, share perspectives and work collaboratively on projects. AFCC's website, members and staff can quickly help identify resources and information that benefit the busy professional.
AFCC convenes members of multiple disciplines in the public, private and nonprofit sectors, from all over the world. AFCC is unique as a professional association because members do not all share a common profession. Rather, AFCC members share a strong commitment to education, innovation and collaboration in order to benefit communities, empower families and promote a healthy future for children.
For nearly six decades, AFCC and its members have served as catalysts for generating major reforms. Dispute resolution processes such as child custody mediation, parenting coordination and divorce education are just a few of the innovative ideas developed by AFCC members. AFCC has developed Practice Guidelines and Standards for family and divorce mediation, child custody evaluation, parenting coordination, brief focused assessment and court-involved involved therapists. Task forces and special projects address the ongoing challenges faced by AFCC members and the families they serve. AFCC actively disseminates innovations and ideas to its members. The ripple effect can be seen in courts and communities throughout the world.
