Family Law Workshops – Lac La Biche & St. Paul

Bearpaw Legal Education & Resource Centre Family Law Workshops

April 22, 2014 9:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. Portage College, St Paul – Common Area
April 23, 2014 9:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. Portage College, Lac La Biche – Room 143

The A-B-Cs of the Child, Youth & Family Enhancement Act – 9:30 am to 11:30 am
This workshop helps participants navigate their way through Children’s Services and explores the legal rights, programs, and resources available to families. The target audience is frontline family support workers and families who are involved with or risk becoming involved with Children’s Services.

Family Group Conferencing – 12:15 – 2:00 pm
Family Group Conferencing (FGC) is a workshop mainly for service providers or members of the public interested in traditional and collaborative approaches regarding child apprehension. The FGCs are circle processes for families, courtworkers and other community support groups as well as Alberta Children and Youth Services. The FGCs can happen after a child is apprehended and before they are placed in a foster or kinship care situation. The idea is that all parties involved, including the child, have a say in the plan for that child. It is based on a traditional approach to healing. Family Group Conferencing explains how the process works, how it can help families and what NCSA can do to help organize a conference.

Parenting – Legal Rights and Responsibilities – 2:15 pm to 3:30 pm
This workshop highlights the legal rights and responsibilities that come with having children. The target audience for this workshop is young parents or parents-to-be, or those that work with this particular demographic.

Workshops delivered by Nadine Callihoo, Bearpaw Legal Education & Resource Centre.   

Sessions are FREE and registration is required to attend. Please register early as seating is limited. Deadline is noon the day before a scheduled session. Register for any of the Bearpaw sessions by email to shelley.jackson@portagecollege.ca, by phone to 1-866-623-5551 (ext. 5680) or online at our Eventbrite page​.

Lac La Biche – Family Violence Awareness Month Sessions

You are invited to join us for:

Family Violence Awareness Month

Public Legal Education Sessions

November 29, 2012

Portage College Room 143

Lac La Biche, Alberta

 

9:30 – Noon                        The Cycle of Violence and Forms of Abuse

Families and community members can play a key role in preventing family violence. People impacted by family violence usually turn first to those they trust. This is usually extended family, friends, neighbours, co-workers or spiritual leaders. After that, people may reach out to a service agency or seek out government services such as police, courts and child protection.

Families dealing with violence are often not aware of the wide range of services that could help them. If they do know, they may hesitate to come forward. Other community members can help support them to connect to sources of help. Please join us for this special PLE session and learn about the family violence warning signs, what to do and where to get help.

Presenter:       Trina McDonald, Family Violence Team Lead

Hope Haven Women’s Shelter

1:00 – 4:00              Family Violence and the Law

Domestic violence can occur as isolated major incidents or as a number of minor incidents that don’t seem serious on their own, but together form an abusive pattern of behaviour. All forms of domestic violence are hurtful.  That being said, some forms are against the Criminal Law of Canada while others are not. Please join us to learn more about Family Violence and the Law.

Presenter:       Melody Littell, Program Coordinator
