SPECIAL TOPIC Night - "Examining Institutional Abuse" with special co-host Dr Jill Jones-Solderman (PhD, MSW, MSHS), a NAASCA family member. ~~ TONIGHT'S TOPIC: “The Work of the FCVFC” ~~ Tonight's special guest is Jeffrey M Bloom, EJD. Jeff is a litigation paralegal as well as a mediator, a tremendous addition to the FCVFC. He's not lawyer but a neutral mediator/arbitrator. His own organization, the Creative Resolutions Group, improves mediation so that the potential outcome of a situation shows a judge that one has taken every reasonable step possible to resolve a conflict before bringing it into the public eye. Jeff can also provide arbitration, a private, adversarial dispute resolution process in which an impartial neutral (the arbitrator) or panel of arbitrators hears arguments, weighs evidence and issues an award based on the merits after an expedited hearing. The object is to seek a win/win result in a court case. ~~ NAASCA knows "institutional abuse" is rampant, worldwide, and dramatically effects childhood experience of our youth, frequently causing trauma that lasts a lifetime. Many issues of child abuse involve dealing with the courts and law enforcement, foster care, child protection services, CASA and CAC organizations, etc. Jill's experience with her Foundation for Child Victims of Family Courts and her US Whistleblower effort uniquely position her to speak to these issues.
