About the Course:
Decisions regarding child custody and other parenting arrangements occur within several different legal contexts, including parental divorce, guardianship, neglect or abuse proceedings, and termination of parental rights. These guidelines were developed for psychologists conducting child custody evaluation, specifically within the context of parental divorce. They build upon the American Psychological Association’s Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct ( APA, 1992 ) and are aspirational in intent. As guidelines, they are not intended to be either mandatory or exhaustive. The goal of the guidelines is to promote proficiency in using psychological expertise in conducting child custody evaluations.
NOTE: APA has published a new version of these Guidelines. CE-Credit.com is in the process of developing a CE course based on the new version. The new version will be available by 3/1/2011. The new version is titled Guidelines for Child Custody Evaluations In Family Law Proceedings (2009) and can be found here: http://www.apa.org/practice/guidelines/child-custody.pdf
This course is based on the reading-based online article, Guidelines for Child Custody Evaluations in Divorce Proceedings: American Psychological Association Practice Directorate created by American Psychological Association, Practice Directorate
