[31. 1. 2020] On April 29, 2020, the AGF will hold a symposium entitled "Child centering and family support in conflict situations, separation processes and divorce proceedings. Supporting accompaniment and court proceedings". The conference venue is Berlin. Conference language will be German.

 

Date: 29 April 2020, 11:00 - 16:30

// Due to COVID-19, the conference has been postponed. We are trying to find another possibility to hold this event later this year.//

 

Background:
Conflicts are part of family life. In about one third of marriages, the conflicts seem so serious to the partners that they are resolved by divorce. In Germany, about 120,000 underage children are affected annually.
 
Various psychosocial counselling services, therapeutic interventions and educational measures exist to support parents and children in family conflict situations. As a rule, one of the aims of these services is to protect the interests of the children in the separation process and to keep their burdens as low as possible. In case of separation, the parents should be put in a position to carry out the separation at the lowest possible level of conflict and to find amicable solutions to the questions of child care and custody.

Legal divorce or custody proceedings are important events in separation processes with far-reaching consequences for the lives of the ex-partners and their children. A successful cooperation between advisory / supporting services for families and judicial actors is of high importance for separation / divorce processes with as little conflict as possible.

Against this background, the conference takes stock of how successful the structures and measures of psychosocial support services and court proceedings are in terms of child centricity and conflict reduction in separation processes.
 
Further issues to be examined are: How well does the Cooperation between professional extrajudicial and judicial actors work and what are the consequences for the families concerned? How well are the existing support measures suited to deal with different conflict levels (highly controversial vs. less controversial) in separation processes?

The event is free of charge. Please register by 17 April 2020.
