Our Family Wizard: High conflict parenting disputes

Payne Hicks Beach’s Sarah Williams is speaking at the OurFamilyWizard's 'High-Conflict Parenting Disputes' webinar on 7 July 2021.

Conflict is unavoidable in divorce and separation, but heightened conflict between parents can make co-parenting a challenge. This expert panel will cover legal and practical strategies to help family lawyers and other professionals.

Topics include:
  • Strategies for breaking the impasse
  • The role (and limitations) of ADR, independent experts and the court process to reduce and resolve conflict
  • Shifting the parental focus from conflict to co-parenting
  • Use of specialist mediation and coaching to support and encourage parental transition
  • When the prospect of resolution is remote: the prevalence of narcissistic traits and/or personality disorders/substance abuse in disputes of this nature and tips for adopting an effective long-term strategy for the benefit of the child
  • Judicial approaches and recent developments

Sarah will be joined by fellow panel speakers: Tosh Brittan, Divorce Life coach; Bill Hewlett, Counsellor, accredited Disptue Resolution Practitioners and Child Consultant and Jennifer Lee, barrister at Pump Court Chambers.
