Child custody legal forensic work includes court-involved therapy, mediation and custody evaluation. This work is an important, interesting, and fulfilling opportunity for licensed mental health professionals to expand their private practice and their earning ability. Mental health professionals often serve as “the voice of the child” in family law proceedings. This area of practice is an important way to help families and children in crisis by providing the court with accurate and helpful information on which to base decisions. Helping families navigate custody arrangements and finding solutions to meet the child's needs can be rewarding both professionally and financially. Because there is currently a shortage of trained professionals providing these specialized services, the Sacramento Valley Child Custody Mediators and Evaluators Group and the Sacramento County Bar Association Family Law Section have collaborated to design this presentation to help interested mental health professionals learn more about the intersection of family law and behavioral health, and about ways to effectively include this area of specialization in your practice.
