Domestic Violence Amendment Act and Related GBV legislation in the context of mediation and care and contact.

The presentation focuses on the intricacy of various family law legislation pertaining to mediation and care and contact in the context of domestic violence. The Presentation first examines the various significant amendments that was brought about in terms of the Domestic Violence Amendment Act, 14 of 2021 which came into operation April 2023. Then it proceeds to highly and examine the entrenched legislative provisions of mediation in the South African law pertaining to care and contact in the context of domestic violence.

The presentation further highlights while mediation in domestic violence proceedings is not a well-established norm within South African family law, but where there are aspects pertaining to care and contact how it is legally, almost imposable to separate the core essence of mediation.

The need to communicate as family members on a regular basis

Family Meetings are important because they are the place where we get to know each other and learn to trust each other. They are the places where we can find happiness and be cared for. Modern families come in various forms. They are not limited to the traditional nuclear family (parents and children). That requires being tolerant and flexible. This is the primary definition of a modern family, which respects the particularities of each member and is not limited to a pre-established scheme of traditional roles of mom, dad, son, or daughter. That said, we need to meet as a family to keep in contact with one another and allow you to belong to something. : In modern families, the affective bond (emotional connection) precedes blood ties. Families prioritise emotional support, empathy, and understanding. Love and care are essential regardless of biological relationships. Meetings need to foster and grow this.

Parent-child Reunification is a relatively new intervention that is gaining attention in the family law fraternity.  This intervention is a form of family guidance by a suitably qualified and experience practitioner, which occurs between parent and child when there has been a break in a parent-child relationship. This break in the parent-child relationship may peak as the child might refuse to have a relationship or contact with a parent. There are many factors that may have contributed to the estrangement between the parent and child and the goal of this intervention is to restore the connection between parent and child.

Getting back in the swings of things….. we are creatures of habit. We like routine, a sense of knowing what is coming next. Why is this SO important for us? Well it speaks our nervous system that likes to be at ease, rather than on high alert! In this fast-pace world, how do we manage to keep all the balls of life in the air?

The quality of everything we do depends on the quality of the thinking we do first
The quality of our thinking depends on the way we treat each other while we are thinking. – Nancy Kline

What is family after divorce?  Boys vs Girls

Isolet Jansen
A mediator is not a judge or a referee, but an impartial and objective facilitator helping families find bespoke solutions when in conflict. Mediation is the foundation of building lasting relationships. I have a heart for families to live in peace and believe that through mediation we can find a way to live a peaceful life regardless of what our family setup looks like. Whether we are dealing with the trauma of divorce or that of a family dispute, through listening and unconditional regard, together we can find a better way forward.
Corlia Erwee
I believe that people can overcome difficult circumstances. We never, ever have to stay where we are. My life story is a testimony of restoration and healing. Sometimes we just need someone to come alongside of us to help us see the open doors and realise that our mountains are not that big. I also believe in a systemic approach.

The paper on Peer Mediation in Secondary Schools is an attempt to support the development of structured programs to manage conflict resolution in schools.  Research has revealed alarming increases in school violence over the last decade, and the statistics are disturbing and upsetting.  Misconduct and disruptive behaviour critically impair effective curriculum delivery.  How to deal with this problem is one of the most underestimated aspects of teacher training and is exacerbated by the relevant educational laws not being specific on how to address it. This clearly is a pressing issue which needs urgent attention.

Parent Effectiveness: How To Create A Safe Space In A Relationship  (Presenter:  Karen Badenhorst)
In this day and age of constant improvement, further education, and career progression, we are continually busy improving, learning, and growing. We ensure that we stay on top of the latest developments in our careers, we acquire a coach at the gym or enroll for a cooking course. Yet, as parents, we do not have the same drive to develop and grow in our lives' most important role.

  • How to handle our children's emotions and talk the language of acceptance
  • How to talk so that our children will listen
  • How to discipline without using power.
  • How and when to teach values

How do we create a safe space in a relationship

When one parent starts to criticize, dismiss, and eliminate anything good from the other parent, they indirectly dismiss the part of the child that identifies with the other parent too.   When it comes to divorce, each child will respond differently and their fears, concerns, and questions will be different depending on their stage of development, personality, and attachment style.  All of these elements have to be considered when dealing with families in crisis. Understanding their behaviour, will help the mediation process and planning. It will also ensure that the voice of the child is understood within this context.  Presenters:  Corlia Erwee and Isolet Jansen

A pioneer in pet custody. She teaches divorce professionals how to work effectively with the range of possibilities they may encounter in pet custody. For example, how might a dog cope with joint custody? Can multiple dogs be split up or do they need to be kept together? What about visitations? Dog breeds are very different; should you treat a Beagle the same as a Rottweiler? And what if your clients have a puppy, or an elderly dog, what then?
