When you request Brenda to interview your child, this is what you can expect: Brenda takes care and attention to ensure that she understands the issues and concerns before meeting with the child. Recognizing that, as parents, you feel there is a lot at stake, she crafts her questions with care to ensure that issues and concerns are explored from all perspectives. Because Brenda believes it is important for the children’s views to be relayed as accurately as possible, she reports the outcome of the interview by providing a transcribed copy of her questions and the child’s full response to each question.
Brenda has trained extensively with Joan Kelly, Ph. D., an internationally renowned divorce and child custody researcher, clinical psychologist, family mediator, parenting coordinator, child advocate, and author. Topics covered in workshops and trainings Brenda has completed with Joan Kelly include the child interview process, listening to children’s views in divorce processes, developing appropriate parenting plans, parental alienation and child alienation.
In addition, Brenda has training in Collaborative Family Law Practices and is well versed in family systems theories, child development, and the risks and buffers for children whose parents divorce.
