Parent Coordination

Description

On August 9, 2018, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court amended the Rule 1915.11-1 and adopting Rules 1915.22 and 1915.23 of the Pennsylvania Rules of Civil Procedure reauthorizing court-appointed Parenting Coordination. The rule will go into effect on March 1, 2019. Parenting Coordination is a process for resolving issues arising out of a custody order issued by the Court. The Parenting Coordinator (PC) is a trained facilitator appointed by the Court to foster communication and agreement conducive to the best interests of the children. Typical issues include: transitions between households, variations from the parenting plan for special events, school issues, child-care arrangements, extra-curricular activities, and other matters related to implementing the parenting plan. The rule provides that to qualify for court appointments, Parenting Coordinators must be "licensed to practice in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania either as an attorney or a mental health professional with a masters degree or higher" and have completed specialized training that includes five hours of parenting coordination process, ten hours of family mediation, and five hours of training in domestic violence" and submit an affidavit to the court every two years attesting that the PC continues to meet the qualifications. This workshop was developed specifically to meet those requirements. Topics: While we have separated the three required topics here, the training format will dovetail the discussions so it is not possible to register for only one portion of the workshop. The workshop will include presenters; individual, small and large group exercises; and role-playing. Participants will receive a certificate of completion to use as verification of course attendance. Parent Coordination: An overview of the history & background of parent coordination, the new PA Court rules dealing with challenging parents cooperative co-parenting vs. parallel parenting, non-compliance, visitation, resistance, interviewing children, child development, parent alienation, syndrome, special needs, domestic violence, screening, power & control, dealing with red flags, rage, gun ownership, drugs and alcohol, threats, victim dynamics & perpetrator dynamics.
