    Magal’s “Virtual” Conference

    Available for Rebroadcast


    May I Speak Freely?” - The Interplay of Therapeutic Privilege, Confidentiality,

    and Family Law


    This conference will outline and discuss the following key topics:

    ·        Misconceptions regarding confidentiality and therapeutic privilege;

    ·        Complexities associated with obtaining and performing privilege waivers for minor children; and

    ·        The ramifications for GALs, PCs, therapists, and other professionals in family law.


    Join us “online” to learn from our distinguished panel of experts about confidentiality and privilege, their effect on GAL evaluations and investigations, or on working as part of a therapeutic team.   Learn about therapeutic privilege for children and adults, the state of the law on confidentiality and privilege, and the practical applications of waivers.
