The Divorce Center regularly schedules professional development events for members of
the various professional disciplines that deal with divorcing clients.
Our Networking/Professional Development breakfast meetings are the primary
means through which we expand the breadth of knowledge and understanding of the
divorce professional community. These breakfast meetings offer professionals from multiple
disciplines the opportunity to meet each other in an informal setting, share thoughts and
ideas, discover how to help one another on cases, and receive education relating to
divorce and the particular needs of divorcing clients.
As an example of
what we do, we teach divorce law to psychologists and other
non-lawyers; the psychology of divorcing people to lawyers and
other non-therapists; and the tax effects of divorce to
non-accountants. The goal is to help professionals expand
their perspective of divorce, gain a more holistic viewpoint,
and reduce the trauma of divorce for their clients.
