Each year, State Bar of Wisconsin PINNACLE assembles expert faculty to present a seminar that will bring experienced guardian ad litem practitioners up to date and provide those interested with an introduction to the profession.

A good start

For those who are new to adult guardianship, this seminar helps to establish a solid foundation. You’ll learn about:

  • Adult GAL basics: What guardianship is, protective placements defined, explanation of Watts reviews
  • Ethics and the GAL: Competency requirements, the value of communication, handling post-appointment conflicts

Build your knowledge

Because many members attend this annual program every year, 2012 Adult GAL Training presents new sets of issues in greater depth. For example:

  • Exploring implications of the Helen E.F. decision; whether or not a court can mentally commit a person with Alzheimer's disease and challenging behaviors, or whether a Chapter 55 protective placement is the appropriate step to take
  • Using mediation skills in high-conflict situations in the context of the GAL experience
  • Detecting and dealing with abuse of adults at risk, including filing restraining orders

Gain knowledge and CLE credits

Plan now to attend 2012 Adult GAL Training so you can learn from highly regarded professionals in the field how to successfully protect proposed wards who can no longer protect themselves – and earn all your required Adult GAL credits including ethics.
