This is an opportunity for you to view the latest scientific research as well as presentations on best practices in law and mental health practice on shared parenting, parental alienation and the best interests of children and families undergoing separation and divorce. The theme of our sixth international conference was, New Paradigms: Advances in Research and Practice on Shared Parenting. Our subthemes included: International Comparisons in Shared Parenting Law, Best Practices in Child- and Family-Friendly Justice, Best Practices in Child- and Family-Friendly Mental Health Intervention, Experiences of Children and Families Affected by Domestic Violence and Parental Alienation and Overcoming Barriers to the Establishment of Shared Parenting in Law. The videos from the conference workshops are grouped according to these five subthemes.

Detailed speaker information is available in the conference booklet.

The Athens conference was our most ambitious to date, in regard to the number and wide scope breadth of the presentations on offer, and we are now able to share this rich store of information with a wider audience.

The Council’s goals are, first, the advancement of scientific knowledge on the needs and best interests of children whose parents are living apart, and second, to formulate evidence-based recommendations about the legal, judicial and practical implementation of shared parenting. The Council has compiled a large database of new research on child and family outcomes in shared parenting families and seeks to integrate this scientific knowledge into family law and professional practice.
