AFCC strives to offer a wide range of conference sessions highlighting different research, advocacy positions, policies, practices, programs, procedures, and ideas. Some programs may be evidence-based while others may report on works in progress, emerging practices, or policy initiatives. The goal of the conference is to enhance learning while encouraging respectful inquiry, discussion, and debate consistent with AFCC organizational values.
The conference will focus on addressing the role of trauma in family courts and the judicial system and advancing the system’s response to the needs of families. It will be held in Washington, DC on 6-9 June 2018.
