A Paradigm Shift from Being Right to Getting it Right

Trina A. Nudson of The Layne Project, Inc and My Child Advocate, PA will show the award winning short film, “Tommy,”  the emotionally-charged story of a young boy and his imaginary friend caught in the middle of a nasty custody battle, and will engage participants in a collaborative, innovative and transformative discussion (CIT) in how to create a paradigm shift from being right to getting it right in the domestic court arena.  Participants will have a private screening of a short, 17 minute film, followed by an open dialogue of the trials and tribulations of a legal professional and mediator in the domestic arena along with how to help families see their way through the domestic court process without losing sight of their children.

Learning Outcome:

Define trauma and trauma responses, and recognize how they impact litigants and legal professionals in the domestic court arena; Understanding how memory is impacted by trauma, how such may impact your clients version of the truth, and how to best manage a case based on this truth; Exploring sanctuary trauma and understanding how the institutional judiciary system can be retraumatizing families.  Conceptualizing a family law system that supports parents in internalizing a paradigm shift from being right to getting it right

BIO: Trina Nudson, LBSW, JD

Trina A. Nudson founded The Layne Project, Inc. in 2008 after working eight (8) collective years in the field of Social Work and Family Law. This unique agency was founded alongside Trina’s law practice, My Child Advocate, PA. She continues to maintain her licenses as a social worker and attorney.

She also served as a juvenile corrections officer, juvenile intake counselor and case manager, and truancy diversion officer. Her passion for helping children is what led her to founding both companies. In addition to being a licensed social worker and attorney, Trina is also a trained and certified mediator, conciliator, parenting coordinator and domestic case manager through the State of Kansas, and is trained as a certified divorce coach and conflict management coach. She is currently a member of the Kansas Bar Association, Johnson County Bar Association, Johnson County Family Law Inn of Court, Juvenile Bench Bar, Supervised Visitation Network, and Association of Family and Conciliation Courts.
