Guardians ad Litem: Peer to Peer Forum - 2023-2024 Discussions and Quarterly Calls
BWJP, in partnership with NCJFCJ, has created an online peer to peer forum for Guardians at Litem. Do you serve as a Guardian ad Litem (GAL)? Are you an attorney or advocate who works with GALs? Guardians ad litem serve the best interests of the children in family court proceedings, as well as civil protection order cases. Their reports and recommendations to the court carry a lot of weight - but what happens when the recommendations don’t serve the best interests of the children and victim-parent? In this peer to peer forum, instructors will facilitate a discussion around GAL emerging issues, best practices, and steps to improve outcomes for children and victim-parents when working with appointed GALs. There will be live Zoom calls, discussion boards, and shared resources.
The live Zoom calls for this year will be held at 3pm CT/4pm ET on:
September 20, 2023
December 13, 2023
March 20, 2024
June 26, 2024
