June 20 CLEBC: Voice of the Child [7 hours]

Presented by: CLEBC
Instructor: Arlene H. Henry, QC and guest presenters

Vancouver, BC

Individuals seeking to apply to the BC Hear the Child Roster as a non-evaluative child interviewer can register for Day 3 of the 5 day PC training course which will focus on the “Voice of the Child”. The social science research on the benefits and cautions of listening to the voices of children and adolescents will be reviewed; and various ways the child’s voice can be obtained and integrated into different dispute resolution options will be identified, such as child representation, mediation, assessment, parenting coordination, and judicial processes. The factors related to the reliability of the input provided by children and adolescents, including interviewer bias, memory, suggestibility and maturity, will be discussed. Finally, a developmentally informed interview protocol will be introduced.

  • BC Hear the Child Society recognizes 7.0 hrs towards the child interview skills portion of the basic training;
  • BC Parenting Coordinator Roster Society recognizes 7.0 hrs towards their child interviewing portion of the PC basic training.
