May 28, 2021 Season 2 Episode 5

In this episode, lawyer, Diana Lowe and I discuss an intriguing project she's a part of called the Reforming the Family Justice System (RFJS) Initiative in Alberta and the difference it is making in the domestic violence sector.

The RFJS is a multi-year, multi-sector collaboration, designed to effect system-wide change in the family justice system in Alberta, based on brain science and Adverse Childhood Experiences. The RFJS is seeking to shift the focus in family justice matters away from adversarial, legal responses, to making supports available to assist families with the social, relationship, parenting and financial issues that arise in family matters. The outcome collaborators are seeking is family well-being, which they define as “Helping Families Thrive”.
