‘High-conflict’ divorce cases have been consistently identified as difficult, complex, time consuming, and costly. They place great strain on individuals, practitioners and courts, as well as on the family law and child support systems more generally. In this session presenters will (a) explore ‘interparental hatred’ as a key relationship dynamic driving some high-conflict cases; and (b) several strategies for professionals working with parents in the grips of entrenched hatred. This seminar is being hosted in partnership with the ANU Research School of Psychology.
