GAL Training 2021

Product ID: CA3137R7
Presented By: State Bar of Wisconsin PINNACLE

Endorsed by the Children & the Law Section of the State Bar of Wisconsin

A critical but complicated task

Discerning the best interests of children in vulnerable and precarious situations is no easy task. How can you make an informed recommendation when you may have a limited ability to get to know the child? How do you safely screen for domestic abuse? How do you balance internal and external pressures while keeping your focus on the best interests of a child?

Guardian ad Litem Training 2021 will help make the process less intimidating by explaining what is expected when the court appoints you to represent the best interests of a minor. Both new and experienced GALs will benefit from tips on how to approach difficult circumstances, as well as one hour of family violence training.
