This session explores issues concerning ethical and safe FDR practice in matters where there is a history of family violence. In particular the session considers how the recent family violence amendments to the Family Law Act 1975 (Cth) impact on FDR practice, and explores the lessons learned from the Coordinated FDR pilot program. The session will include the latest debate and information regarding the influence of family violence on power and control issues and will also be interactive drawing on the experience and expertise of the audience.
