AFCC Oregon Spring Conference

April 19th, 2024

Portland, Oregon

The Grotto

The Oregon AFCC Spring conference is returning to in person April 19th, 2024 at the Portland, Grotto.

This year’s conference will feature two excellent speakers, both experts in their field. Joan Meier, JD will be presenting on the implications of domestic violence for case theory development and interventions; and Shawn McCall, PsyD, JD will be doing the same for parent-child contact problems.

Domestic violence and parent-child contact problems are central tensions to one of the more complex issues in domestic relations cases. The tension has become an issue of professional and policy concern as it works out at both the individual family and greater socio-legal level. This conference is sure to provide insight into those issues as they pertain to the families we serve in our community.

Joan Meier, JD is a full time professor of clinical law and director of the National Violence Law Center at George Washington University. She founded three pioneering and nationally recognized interdisciplinary domestic violence programs, and has published widely on the topic of domestic violence.

Shawn McCall, PsyD, JD is a practicing psychologist and attorney, co-author of Overcoming the Alienation Crisis: 33 Coparenting Solutions. He has presented and testified widely on matters related to high conflict divorce and separation and parent-child contact problems.
