Course Schedule:

8:30 a.m. • Check-in & Continental Breakfast

8:45 a.m. • Welcome from Our Family Wizard (Platinum Sponsor)

9:00 a.m. • Limited Family Assessment: Forensic vs. Court Ordered Limited Evaluations.
Dr. Wes Crenshaw, 
Family Psychological Services, Lawrence
Courts may ask individuals trained in the provision of mental health services to interview parties and children in custody matters and then make recommendations as to how the best interests of the children might be expressed. Unfortunately, that vague description offers little insight about what courts actually need from professionals, a question not best left to the provider. That is, in part because courts may not know the nuances between provider disciplines, forensic assessment models, and best practices for assessing families, and the average provider is not trained in forensic assessment and testimony. This sets the stage for crossed-purposes and missed-marks at the interface between psychology, social work, and the law. Dr. Wes Crenshaw will provide an overview of what does and doesn’t constitute a valid and reliable forensic evaluation of custody and how courts should differentiate and consume fact-collecting models versus comprehensive custody evaluations and expert testimony. He will answer questions from the audience via microphone or text message during the program.

9:50 a.m. • Speaking Different Languages: Helping to Put the Legal & Psychological Communities on the Same Page.
Dr. Dan Claiborn, 
Forensic Psychologist, Kansas City
Dr. Scott Jones, Psychological Family Services, Kansas City
Hon. Keven O'Grady, Tenth Judicial District-Division 1, Olathe
Two eminent mental health professionals and a family court judge will lead a discussion about the mental health challenges faced by many family law litigants, the meanings of diagnoses, the treatments available and how mental health professionals, lawyers and judges can work together to create better outcomes for families.   Attendees can expect to learn about common psychiatric and psychological diagnoses, the treatments and medications prescribed, their efficacy, and suggestions for how to ethically and  professionally deal with these issues in a parenting plan dispute.

10:40 a.m. • Break

10:50 a.m.  Immigration Law Intersecting with Family Law
Michael Sharma-Crawford,
Sharma-Crawford Attorneys at Law, Kansas City MO
Issues where immigration law and domestic law intersect.

11:40 a.m. • Lunch (provided)

12:40 p.m. • Reintegration and Reunification Processes: Models, Principles & Suggestions.
Milfred D. Dale, Law Office of Bud Dale, Topeka
Sara Barnes, Cornerstone of Care, Overland Park and Roeland Park
Adrian E. Zelvy, Family Psychological Services, LLC, Lawrence
Courts tasked with reintegrating or reunifying parents and children often ask for help from mental health professionals and alternative dispute resolution (ADR) practitioners. The three presenters will outline the models and principles that guide their efforts to heal relationships strained by absences, alienation, and estrangements.  Because these efforts often involve multiple children and multiple providers, the presentation will address the importance of collaboration and teamwork between professionals, as well as the how to frame and work with the parties in ways that maximize opportunities for success.  

1:30 p.m. • Special Needs Children/Special Needs Trusts
Stacy L. Janssen, Dysart Taylor Cotter McMonigle & Montemore PC, Kansas City MO
This presentation will be touching on special needs children and families, specifically involving special needs trusts and the intersection with public benefits (Medicare and Medicaid) that affect family law issues.

2:20 p.m. • Break

2:30 p.m. • Daubert and Mental Health Testimony - A Practical Approach (100 minute program)
John Zervopoulos,
 Psychology Law Partners, Dallas TX
Kansas courts are among many state courts that use Daubert to test the admissibility of expert evidence and testimony, raising important evidentiary and practical questions in family law cases. How can lawyers use Daubert requirements in their admissibility arguments to the court? How can lawyers effectively apply Daubert principles to critique already admitted mental health evidence and testimony?

This talk will address these questions with two objectives:

1. Review Ten Key Daubert Questions.
Daubert’s concepts seem difficult to apply, particularly with mental health testimony. Ten key Daubert questions highlight Daubert’s demands and its flexibility, providing bases for critiquing social science testimony and offering legal arguments when challenging or defending that testimony.

2. Introduce the PLAN Model.
The PLAN Model, a practical four-step model based in Daubert caselaw and psychology’s literature, provides a structure to organize and critique the work and testimony of mental health experts.

4:10 p.m. • A Rising Tide Lifts Most Boats: How Technology Floats Good Lawyers and Sinks the Bad (Ethics & Professionalism)
Hon. Kevin M. Smith, 
Eighteenth Judicial District - Juvenile Division, Wichita
Judge Smith will discuss easy to implement technologies that will help lawyers not only manage their busy schedules and keep up-to-date on case law and statutory changes but avoid the pitfalls that lead to malpractice and ethics issues such as missed filing deadlines and court appearances, as well as poorly researched or edited briefs and motions. He will also discuss disciplinary cases that involve fact patterns that could have been avoided with implementation of these inexpensive, easily accessible technologies.

People in Crisis: A Poverty Simulation CLE

Presented by The Kansas Bar Association Diversity Committee and Kansas Women Attorneys Association, together with Women in Law, the Public Interest Law Society, and the Faculty & Staff Committee on Diversity at the University of Kansas School of Law.

Friday, April 13 | 2 – 4 p.m. program | 4 – 5 p.m. reception

The Oread, 1200 Oread Ave., Lawrence, KS 66044

2.0 hours CLE credit in Kansas and 2.4 hours CLE credit in Missouri

Free to attorneys and judges, with preference given to KBA and KWAA members and KU Law alumni and students.

Space limited to 80 attendees

RSVP TODAY

The People in Crisis CLE program is an interactive exercise with up to 80 participants assuming the roles of up to 26 different families living with limited resources. Some families are newly unemployed, some are recently deserted by the breadwinner and others receive Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), either with or without additional income. Still others are senior citizens receiving Social Security or grandparents raising grandchildren. The task of the families is to provide for basic necessities and shelter during the course of one simulated “month,” comprised of four 15-minute “weeks.”

During the CLE program, there are a variety of community resources and service agencies available to the families, including a bank, food pantry, general employer, payday and title loan company and social services agency. Volunteers play the roles of the community resources and service agencies. The CLE program lasts approximately 2 hours. It includes an introduction, the interactive exercise and a debriefing period in which the participants and volunteers share their feelings and experiences, talking about what they have learned during the exercise.

The People in Crisis CLE program helps participants better understand what it might feel like to be a member of a low-income family trying to meet basic needs each month. While we may be intellectually familiar with the statistics of poverty, this exercise enables participants to experience some of the emotional stresses and frustrations created by having limited resources, as well as the difficult choices people with few resources feel they may need to make in order to survive.

Mindfulness for the Ethical Practice of Law

1.0 CLE KS and MO (pending)

Speaker:Rebecca Martin, McDowell Rice

Program Details:

For over a decade, law students, judges, law professors and practicing attorneys have been utilizing meditation and mindfulness to develop concentration, improve emotional well-being, and lessen the stress of legal work. According to Terry Harrell, chair of the ABA’s Commission on Lawyer Assistance Programs, “Meditation and mindfulness are not just good for us the way things like fish oil are. They actually affect the quality of legal work. A mindfulness practice makes us better decision-makers, better ethical decision-makers. And that translates into better lawyering.”

This one-hour CLE program will present data and research documenting the connection between mindfulness and ethical decision making as well as effective and ethical lawyering. Mindfulness is being taught to attorneys throughout the country to improve and maintain attorney competency as well as improve communication and civility in our profession.   

This program will introduce legal professionals new to the practices of meditation and mindfulness to effective daily practices and the benefits of such practices as well as suggest additional techniques for those legal professionals already engaging in meditation and mindfulness. Proper breathing techniques to reduce stress and to create gaps between stimulus and response will be demonstrated. Multitasking will be highly discouraged, and suggestions on how to be a happy attorney as well as a mindful attorney will be made.

The speakers will review:

• Social Media Research Ethical Guidelines

• State Bar, Local Bar, and ABA Ethics Opinions

• How They All Tie into the ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct

The program will also explore:

• Who's your friend? Could "friending" violate the deception or ex parte communication ethical rules?

• Whether it is ethical to research the social media profiles of potential jurors before trial or seated jurors before and during trial?

• If advising clients to delete, deactivate, or adjust privacy settings on their social networking accounts lead to an ethical violation or spoliation charge?
