About this event

The Utah Chapter of the AFCC – the Association of Family and Conciliation Courts - will hold its Annual Meeting and Conference on October 6 and 7, 2022, at the University Guesthouse Douglas Ballroom at the University of Utah. The theme this year is "Co-Parenting in a High-Conflict World.” This two-day multi-disciplinary event will feature workshops from various experts, offering break-out sessions dealing with relevant and compelling topics of interest to the family law and mental health community. We kick-off the conference at 1 pm on October 6, followed by another exciting and jammed-packed day from 8 am to 5 pm on Friday, October 7.

We are excited to be joined this year as our Keynote Speaker, Mindy Mitnick, Ed.M., a nationally renowned expert on effective interventions in high-conflict divorce. Mindy is a Harvard-educated psychologist and a frequent and favorite speaker at AFCC events and statewide training conferences. She has trained countless professionals throughout the country about developmental issues in parenting schedules, dealing with high-conflict co-parenting issues, assessing allegations of sexual abuse during divorce disputes, and using expert witnesses in divorce cases.

In addition to the opportunity to learn valuable insights about dealing with high-conflict families, our conference will have numerous workshops on such topics as:

  • Providing effective resources and interventions for HIGH CONFLICT CO-PARENTS
  • Dealing with TRAUMA
  • Practice tips for THERAPISTS working with high-conflict families
  • Understanding and demystifying family law issues in MILITARY FAMILIES
  • A workshop for MEDIATORS
  • Maximizing the role of the private GUARDIAN AD LITEM
  • Gaining valuable practice pointers from our esteemed COURT COMMISSIONERS
  • Learning about an intriguing INTERNATIONAL CHILD CUSTODY ABDUCTION CASE

These gatherings are an easy way to earn CE and CLE credits, network with members of the judiciary, court-informed therapists, custody evaluators, mediators, and family law attorneys + expand your knowledge base in exchange for a short investment of time and money. Breakfast, lunch, coffee, and good times included!
