Course Description:

This course is a brief overview of key elements and factors to consider when doing a child custody evaluation. It is based upon an article published by the American Psychological Association.  The course provides the participant with a summary of all relevant factors to consider before embarking upon this aspect of practice.  Given the litigious nature of custody battles, it is very important for a practicing clinician to be fully informed regarding standards of care and best practices.   The course is designed for beginner level clinicians or for intermediate and advanced clinicians who want to expand their practice into this area.

 

Psychologists, social workers, mental health counselors, and marriage and family therapists can benefit from this course. This course is particularly beneficial for clinicians who work with courts or conduct child custody evaluations in their practice.  

 

 

Author: American Psychological Association (APA)
