Family Law Section to Host Evening Meeting Regarding Parental Influences in Child Custody Matters


Judicial officers, lawyers, and licensed mental health professionals are invited to join the Family Law Section on Wednesday, February 8, 2012 for an interesting topic regarding important issues that involve "Alienation, Estrangement, Attachment, and Alignment."  The meeting will begin at 6:00 p.m. and will be held at Noor located within the Paseo Mall.

           Some of the most difficult cases that family law attorneys face are those which a child resists or refuses contact with one of his or her parents.  In order to assist members deal with these issues, the Pasadena Bar Association will host this special evening event where three expert guest speakers will address the problems in a panel type of forum.      Our three guest speakers for the evening will be Leslie Drozd, Ph.D., Kathryn Kuehnle, Ph.D.; and Lisa Kiriakidis, Certified Family Law Specialist. 

            Leslie Drozd and Kathryn Kuehnle have also agreed to sign copies of their latest book, being released in the near future, which includes a chapter specifically devoted to the topic of alienation.  The book will be available for sale at the meeting.

            We look forward to this interesting and informative meeting and expect a very large turnout among local family law professionals.  For those interested in attending this meeting, reservations can be made by contacting Linda Dugan at
