The confidentiality provisions in the Family Law Act raise a number of challenging issues for Family Counselling practitioners. Critically, it is important to know whether a process is “family counselling” due to these provisions, given the broad definition.
The webinar addressed the following questions: what constitutes family counselling? And how does this impact the work of practitioners? Are they providing “family counselling” under the Act?
