Advanced Family Court Navigation
Advanced Family Court Navigation is written for professionals supporting victims, and those seeking a deeper insight into coercive control in the family court. This course is globally applicable. Course authors Natalie Page and Clare Walker will take you through six online modules and two flexible interactive workshops to develop your understanding of coercive control and family court.
This course will take you through the court’s narrative, decision making, and how trauma presentation is perceived. You’ll find out what constitutes coercive control, the intentions of a perpetrator and how this abuse manifests in victims and wider society.
You’ll understand how perpetrators present in the court process, the biases they exploit, and what problems they present for the court and victims. We will cover the history of parental alienation and how it intersects with coercive control. You will find out about the role of expert witnesses and how to ensure yours is informed.
You’ll learn how laws are created and implemented globally, and how systems and structures inform, relate and connect. Law is global and also varied, so we’ll look at how a case heard in England can be utilized internationally in this globally applicable course.
You’ll learn how to navigate a difficult system by applying some effective self-advocacy strategies. You will develop a deeper understanding of how to protect victims from poor outcomes using safe preventative practices.
