Separation and Same-Sex Parented Families Workshop by Dr Luke Gahan
WA Family Law Pathways Network is pleased to present this workshop by Dr Luke Gahan who will be presenting his findings from the Australian Separated Same-Sex Parent Study at full-day workshops in Perth and Busselton.
Some of the topics covered include same-sex parents’ experiences of separation services, post-separation shared care, and the legal recognition of non-biological parents after separation. Service providers will gain a better understanding of same-sex parented families and learn how to work effectively with same-sex parents experiencing separation.
