Parenting Capacity Assessments
Typically, this service is sought by Child Protective Services and/or the parent’s legal counsel.
A Parenting Capacity Assessment (PCA) is a vital method for determining the ability of a parent to meet the emotional, physical, psychological and developmental needs of children. Connie attended the University of Calgary for training in conducting parenting capacity assessments in 2010. Since then, she has conducted over 35 assessments. Notably, most assessments resulted in resolution between Child Protective Services and the parent and few proceeded to trial. Connie has been recognized as an expert witness in various Queen’s Bench and Family Courts in Saskatchewan.

Professional Consultations and Clinical Supervision
Working in the clinical field is challenging and isolating. Trying to keep up with current research is an added stressor for counsellors. Over the years, the need to provide clinical services to families entrenched in high conflict divorces has risen. More and more parents are struggling with an ex-spouse who is unwilling to negotiate parenting plans that are in the best interests of their children. Some parents engage in behaviour indicative of parental alienation, which is a distinctive response to the complex process of divorce and can constitute a pattern of severe psychological abuse. Connie has specialized training and expertise in parental alienation and is open to provide consultation/supervision services to clinicians.
