Episode 1. Parental Alienation
Guests: Lorne MacLean, Rhonda Pisanello
In recent years a new "buzz word" has evolved in the family law world: parental alienation. This is a term which refers to the very concerning practice among many separated parents of doing everything within their power to turn their children against the other parent. Why is it so difficult for some parents to accept that their children have a right and a need to enjoy a happy, healthy, loving relationship with both parents? How effective is the family justice system in addressing this serious problem? There are some very innovative and ground-breaking solutions being implemented by the mental health profession. What are they and do they succeed in re-integrating alienated children with their non-custodial parents? Learn all about this fascinating phenomenon in this special episode of "Family Matters".
Episode 2. Grandparent's Rights
Guests: Emmanuel Witzman, Daphne Jennings
In this new age of "cyberlove" and casual relationships, the family law world is seeing an avalanche of short term relationships that fizzle out quickly - but they last long enough to produce children. There is a new-found emphasis on the rights and responsibilities of grandparents, particularly when people become parents at an early age. What does the law say about the role that grandparents are allowed to play in the lives of their grandchildren following a family breakdown? How do the courts treat grandparents? Join Justice Brownstone in this groundbreaking landmark episode featuring experts who will share their advice on this increasingly important topic.
Episode 3. Parent Coordinators
Guests: Shelagh Kinney, John-Paul Boyd
One of the most exciting new fields that has arisen in recent years is parenting coordination. A growing number of separated and divorced parents have opted to resolve their disputes privately, without going to court, by relying on the assistance and expertise of specially trained social workers and mental health professionals who serve as parenting coordinators. What are the pros and cons of using this form of alternative dispute resolution? How much does it cost? What kinds of parental disputes are best suited to parenting coordination? How do you find parenting coordinators in your community? Join Justice Brownstone and his expert guests for a lively and highly informative episode where all of these issues will be discussed, and much more.
