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 June 18th Grand Round:

- Accommodations that may need to be made to ensure all parties feel empowered and can participate fully.
- How to assess and assist parties with early stages of cognitive decline. There are assessment tools that a facilitator can employ to best address concerns related to the possibility of cognitive decline.
Having the neutral facilitator engage the parties can build trust in this process and thereby further the notion that all parties’ interests will be equitably shared and discussed. We will also discuss options to consider when looking at alternative financial options to protect older couples after divorce and how to address involvement and concerns of adult children, particularly when they are from a blended family. These are some of the issues to be addressed in this interactive presentation. Sharon O’Day and Dr. Brad Broeder will be co-presenting on behalf of the Sarasota Collaborative Family Law Professionals.
