The Family Law Pathways Networks across Australia invite you to join a free webinar with leading family law expert, Zoe Rathus AM.
This webinar will explore the concept of parental alienation in the Australian family law system, and particularly will look at the impact of tensions between:
the philosophy of shared post-separation parenting;
family and domestic violence;
protection of children from harm;
allegations of alienation of children from a parent; and
ways the idea of parental alienation can be misused.
