Plenary Session

Connecticut implemented a new Civil Intake Screen as part of their strategic plan that aims to create an efficient and clinically sensitive method to maximize the quality and efficiency of the family court process, and outcomes for families. The screen acts as a triage to optimize the level of services allocated to each case. This keynote will describe the purpose of the Screen and an evaluation focusing on its efficacy and cost-effectiveness. The resolution adopted by the California Chapter declares that there is a clear a present danger to the public health of the children of California mandating that the mental health community, the legal community and all stakeholders in the family court system recognize that the impact of family court upon children is not simply a matter of court resources allocated to the third branch of government based on the exigencies of available state resources to fund trial courts. Given that approximately half the children born in no-fault divorce jurisdictions since 1970 have some interface with the family court, and taking into account that nearly 1 in 3 children are born outside of marriage, and considering that many children interface with the family court through domestic violence proceedings, nearly one half of two generations of children are affected by the resources and services provided to them and their parents through the family court. In an environment of constricting resources available to courts, there is an urgent need for reframing the issue as a public health crisis, and then enlisting all the relevant stakeholders in an effort to increase the resources for the family court to cope with this public health issue. The presentation will urge broad-based community support for this effort to redefine the problem, but demonstrate how strategies for engaging the other stakeholders in the process of redefinition and acquisition of necessary services in an interactive session.
