Illinois Counseling Association Annual Conference: Remedies For Families Facing Crisis Interruptions

October 30, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Tenured Family Law Attorney Gwendolyn J. Sterk and Hanna Stotland, JD, an independent educational consultant specializing in crisis management, will collaborate to discuss how mental health providers can educate and work with families in crisis. Many clients may have the stigma that a crisis may force them into a dead-end but that is not the case…there is always hope and a crisis does not mean that opportunities for education are over. Stotland will share case studies of how youth have overcome mental health, substance abuse, or criminal justice crises to get their educations back on track. Sterk will incorporate legal statutes in Illinois regarding Family Law and how such factors can meld into assisting providers with clients in crisis, specifically with divorce or parenting matters and how the Courts put forth a child’s financial college contribution.
