SPECIAL TOPIC Night - "For Our Kids" - Deborah Maddison, and Tracy Baxter, Canadian activists from British Columbia, will welcome Dan Brewington from Norwood, Ohio, as our US guest host. Dan was one of the subjects of the "Divorce Corp" documentary. The three will lead this evening's discussion about the Rights of Children and Families in North America. Tonight we are covering a very sensitive topic, "Family Court and the Reality of Grief, Loss and Trauma for Children and Families." It should be noted that although we have 5 different individuals who have different stories to tell, the outcome, and the trauma they suffered, is remarkably similar. Going through the system while in a state of acute emotional distress is much like how Prisoners Of War suffer in battle. We are very privileged to have two esteemed experts addressing these issues tonight, Dr Julie Macfarlane, University Professor, Faculty of Law, University of Windsor, Ontario and Dr. Edward Kruk, Associate Professor of Social Work from the University of British Columbia. The judicial system has become such a hostile environment that Litigation has actually been referred to by lawyers as the last Blood Sport in America. We will also be discussing something the system seems to forget, the grief and trauma suffered by children, and how this affects them for the rest of their lives. The best interests of the system are NOT the best interests of the child. ~~ Every two weeks a new THEME will be presented in this series, with frequent special guests speaking from their own experience. ~~ Please see our web page at: www.NAASCA.org/ForOurKids or write to: firstname.lastname@example.org
