Pro Bono Parenting Coordination

"An APA Practice Organization-backed pilot project that provides free parenting coordination to needy Washington, D.C., parents in high-conflict divorces opened its first cases in November. The project--a collaboration of the D.C. Psychological Association the D.C. Bar's Pro Bono Program and Argosy University/Washington, D.C.--trained three advanced Argosy graduate students to serve as the project's parenting coordinators. The collaborators supervise the coordinators throughout the project, which was funded for one year by a $15,000 grant from the APA Practice Organization's Committee for the Advancement of Professional Practice. "The project offers us the chance to be on the forefront of something that makes really good sense," says Argosy student Kay Hughes, JD, a New Mexico lawyer who plans to incorporate parenting coordination into her practice after graduation. "But probably what is most exciting about the project is that we're providing a service to a population that has had no access to it."" By D.
