COURTS, CUSTODY, KIDS, TRAUMA: THE TRAGEDY OF FAMILY COURTS

          What happens when an infant is shuffled from one care giver to another? Research is pretty clear that kids without a stable primary caregiver have problems with focus, attention, attachment, even sleep. Yet family courts are routinely dividing residential child custody more and more and with younger and younger children. Don’t they see the research? Why would courts do this when the science is so clear?

          Lisa Fischel-Wolovick, attorney and social worker looked at the studies and culled the information to find out exactly what is happening. Her book, “Traumatic Divorce and Separation,” and a new article in Family and Intimate Partner Violence Quarterly, look at Traumatic Exposure in Children During Custody Litigation, and found a shocking truth: kids are being severely harmed in abusive situations and the courts.

          Find out more about her research, the reasons this is happening, and what might be done to correct the situation. Join us for a discussion about abuse, kids, custody and the science.

Airing for the first time Saturday, October 20, at 11 AM Pacific Time, and available thereafter through the archive at www.blogtalkradio.com/3women3ways
