The International Centre for Children and Family Law is a child focused research and training centre emphasising appropriate inclusion of children in matters that affect them.

The centre offers specialized training in the areas of child inclusion, children’s rights, child and adolescent development, high conflict separation and divorce, domestic violence and the impact on children and families, child protection and innovative alternative dispute resolution practices including children.

Based in Calgary, Canada, and Sydney, Australia, the Centre seeks opportunities to collaborate with other child focused colleagues.  In 2018 we formed collaborative partnerships with:

  • DEAKIN UNIVERSITY
  • RELATIONSHIPS AUSTRALIA
  • ALBERTA JUSTICE AND SOLICITOR GENERAL
  • MEDIATION WEST, NEBRASKA
  • W.K. FAMILY LAWYERS, CALGARY

Child's Voice

Lorri and Jon present for Relationships Scotland the Child Centred Continuum Model.

In January, Lorri and Jon worked with the team at Relationships Scotland to consider new approaches to the Voice of the Child. Combining a public Child Centred Continuum Model workshop with a one day Meeting with Children Master Class the two day event was a huge success.
