AFCC is accepting proposals for 90-minute workshops until Thursday, October 3, 2013 for the 51st Annual Conference:
Navigating the Waters of Shared Parenting: Guidance from the Harbour
At the Westin Harbour Castle in Toronto, Ontario
May 28-31, 2014
Proposals must be submitted using the online form accessible at www.afccnet.org.
There is limited consensus about the term “shared parenting” after separation and divorce. It may refer to parenting time, quality, decision making or responsibilities; it has multiple labels, including joint or split custody, access, time sharing and parallel parenting. Many believe shared parenting to be a worthy goal; others caution against presumptions and unintended consequences. Join AFCC for this ongoing conversation about the pros, cons, challenges and opportunities that shared parenting presents for children, families, practitioners, researchers, policymakers and advocates.
