Elsbeth Freeman, Ph.D, will speak on the topic, “Psychological and Ethical Considerations Encountered in the Context of Mediation.”  Dr. Freeman is a clinical and forensic psychologist in practice since 1982.  From 1982 to 2010, she performed court ordered child custody evaluations for hundreds of cases in Knox and surrounding county courts.  Trained as a family mediator in 1999, Dr. Freeman was appointed to the Alternative Dispute Resolution Commission of the Tennessee Supreme Court in 2000, and served three years in that capacity.

Her presentation on January 15 will focus on psychological issues, family dynamics, developmental considerations, legalities, and ethical concerns she has encountered in her experience as a custody evaluator, and as a mediator working with adults and children in the context of divorce.
