posted Wednesday, Mar 13, 2019

Dr. Joseph Zingaro of People's Place Counseling Center in Milford was one of 18 custody evaluators nationwide accepted to participate in a two-day institute for custody evaluators focusing on the evaluation of intimate partner violence.  The training was sponsored by the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Systems in partnership with the Association of Family and Conciliation Courts, The Battered Women's Justice Project and the U.S. Department of Justice Office on Violence Against Women.

The faculty included family court judges, family law attorneys and a psychologist.  The program was part of an on-going pilot to develop training for custody evaluators to examine the benefits and harms of custody evaluations for families experiencing domestic violence.  The program's goals included enhancing the capacity of custody evaluators to understand and account for domestic violence in its various contexts and cultures.
