FACP’s Practice Group Committee is pleased to present a Collaborative version of “Grand Rounds,” modeled after the medical teaching process.
We are inviting you and your practice group members to participate as presenters, and by submitting issues for future discussion, based on actual Collaborative family law cases. Each month, a different practice group will present on one of the submitted cases at a virtual lunch hour (12-1pm EST) meeting. Ideally, one attorney, one mental health professional and one financial professional will present for the first part of each session, with whole-group discussion thereafter.
Our Grand Rounds series will be held on the third Friday of each month. Please send an email to Brittany Staggs, the FACP Administrator, at (Brittany.firstname.lastname@example.org) and she will forward a monthly reminder to you for distribution to your practice group members. We welcome participation from FACP members and non-members alike. Registration information will be on the reminder/invitation from Brittany, who will be receiving the registrations and following up with a zoom link for all registered participants.
Register in advance for the July 16th Grand Round:
What to Expect When You’re Setting Expectations – The importance of the professional team setting expectations in the pre-meeting.
What happens when? Who’s responsible for? How shall we handle? In this Grand Rounds we will discuss setting team expectations prior to the first full team meeting. Each professional (Attorney, Mental Health Facilitator and Financial Neutral) has their own preferences, expectations and needs. Asking the right questions and discussing individual and group expectations during your professional team meeting is critical to creating an effective team that executes a successful collaborative outcome.
