FLPN logo

 

In this one-hour webinar, Dr Rachel Carson presents on the key findings from the ‘Children and young people in separated families: Family Law system experiences and needs’ project, a qualitative study commissioned and funded by the Australian Government through the Attorney-General’s Department. The study aimed to investigate the experiences and needs of children and young people whose parents had separated and had accessed the family law system. This webinar explores the insights from participating children and young people about the issues that are important to them in making post-separation parenting arrangements as well as their experiences with, and reflections on, family law system services. Rachel also provides a snapshot of effective professional practice from the perspective of children and young people.

The views expressed in this paper are those of the authors and may not reflect the views of the Australian Institute of Family Studies and the Australian Government, Attorney-General’s Department.

UMFC acknowledges the First Peoples of Australia as the traditional custodians of the land on which we work. We acknowledge their culture is a living one, which relates to their ongoing connection to all things living and non-living on land, sea and sky. We pay our respect to their elders past and present. May our children of today lead us to a better tomorrow.
