Audience[ edit ] Business plans may be internally or externally focused. Externally focused plans target goals that are important to external stakeholders, particularly financial stakeholders. They typically have detailed information about the organization or team attempting to reach the goals. With for-profit entities, external stakeholders include investors and customers.
Some programs may be evidence-based while others may report on works in progress, emerging practices or policy initiatives.
The goal of the conference is to enhance learning while encouraging respectful inquiry, discussion and debate consistent with AFCC organizational values. AFCC does not necessarily endorse or support the views of the conference presenters.
Family structures now include heterosexual marriage, unmarried cohabitants, same-sex partners married and unmarriedadoptive children, children of assisted reproductive technologies, single parent and multigenerational families, kinship care, foster care and more.

Table of Contents Conference at a Glance Simon, PhD Larry V. New Challenges, New Solutions. This conference will bring a rich selection of topics, current views and findings.
The content of the pre-conference institutes, plenaries and workshops is of such high quality. I warmly invite you to attend one of the best themed international conferences in recent times, so that you can hear and learn from what is on offer.
We wanted this conference to present some of the most current perspectives on a range of issues pertaining to modern parenting. And so, in the pre-conference institutes, we present the opportunity to spend quality time on such issues as alienation and estrangement, mediation when there is intimate partner violence, giving real effect to the voice of the child and analysing what modern day access to justice really is.
One of the institutes deals with how animal-based therapy can help high conflict families. In our three plenary sessions, we will learn about marriage and family trends, modern fathering, and then turn to a view from the bench on samesex marriage, adoption and families.
It is always important to ensure that we have a wide range of subject matter available in our workshops because all of you will have your specific interests. And so, we have ensured that practitioners from all disciplines have workshops dealing with skills in mediation, evaluation, parenting coordination, court techniques, as well as new ideas and opportunities.
But you will see that we have also expanded our horizons to bring you some information on such things as the role of race and culture in marriage dissolution, perspectives in same-sex families and surrogates in parenting.
There are also some issues that I think we are right to focus on, such as parents with autism, addiction or substance abuse. Again, consistent with our theme of modern families, there are workshops focusing on fostering permanency, grandparents and other family members as primary caregivers, international custody mediation and resilience in children growing up in military families.
For judicial officers, our special judicial forum will centre on litigant parents who breach court orders and just how far a judicial officer should go and in what form, in acting coercively.
What is the balance between being firm on the one hand, while causing possible damage to children on the other? As well as our professional programme, the conference will offer truly excellent opportunities for socialising and networking. As usual, the hospitality suite, always popular, will offer you, at no cost, a social haven, and the various receptions and lunches will enable you to meet old friends and new colleagues.
The diversity of subject matter, as well as the number of countries represented by the presenters, is very encouraging to me. Seattle is a remarkably attractive city and I hope that those of you from outside North America will see this as an ideal opportunity to learn from international colleagues and experience the richness that a conference like this offers.
I invite you to make the commitment to come, to mark the time and to then put your attendance plans into action. You will not regret it. Please see registration information on page How and what do they change and who is responsible for facilitating the change?
Who does the change benefit? Presenters in this institute will focus on identifying innovations that can enhance the experience and toolbox of those struggling with family law issues in challenging times.The outline of our business plan template appears below.
