Barry Goldstein has been on this show before discussing the various issues involving the inaccuracies of the court system, especially when it comes to abusive partners and the custody court room process wherein the power and control of the abuser is more the issue rather than, oftentimes, the true desire to have custody of the children. It's amazing how the courts don't see through these antics and manipulations of the abusers. More training needs to be done in the courts, of course. The Battered Mother's Custody Conference has been bringing activists, supportive professionals, and protective moms to come together in a safe setting to discuss these issues since 2004. In January 2011 will be another such conference and Barry Goldstein will bring us up to speed on the conference history and what it means to those trying to gain custody with an abusive partner in the courtroom. Please join us to review this journey from 2004 to today and learn what you can do to help.
