2018 Florida Guardian ad Litem Disabilities Training Conference "What's Your Super Power?"

Course description

Complex medical issues (CMI) and rare diseases in children significantly impact families and can lead to accusations of Medical Child Abuse (MCA). 
MCA versus diagnosis of Factitious Disorder, and other related disorders must be differentiated. The “Perfect Storm” when MCA accusations are made against such families of child(ren) with CMI is increasing. The underlying reasons, parental profiles, catalysts, factual distortion, and trauma to the child are addressed. 
Best practices in defending parents, the role of the GAL in regards to the child, and the role of the Court are presented. 

Speaker:  Debra M. Salisbury, Esquire, ARNP
