POWER AND CONTROL IN FAMILY COURTS
Anyone who has ever gotten a divorce knows that courts are intimidating places. Anyone who has ever divorced an abuser knows courts can do a lot more than just intimidate. They can destroy your life and sense of reality.
The dynamics of abuse between intimate partners spill into legal proceedings, revictimize spouses and children and cause harm that costs individuals and society dearly. How can this happen?
That’s what Dr. Julie Ancis researches, and she has some pretty alarming findings.
Ancis is Associate Vice President for Institute Diversity at Georgia Institute of Technology, is an Adjunct Professor in the School of Psychology, and has authored many publications. Her co-edited book with Corinne Datchi entitled Gender, Psychology and Justice: The Mental Health of Women and Girls in the Legal System with NYU press, is due for imminent release.
Join us as we talk about guardians ad litem, gender bias in family court, bogus psychological theories and assumptions that are harming women and children, and racking up big costs for them and for society as a whole.
