Resolution announces revised code of practice
Resolution - which represents 6,500 family justice professionals - including B P Collins - who are committed to supporting couples to reach constructive solutions to family disputes, says it has revised its Code of Practice to reflect the changing family justice environment. The revised Resolution Code of Practice states:
"Resolution is a community of family justice professionals who work with families and individuals to resolve issues in a constructive way.
Resolution membership is about the approach we take to our work. This means that as a Resolution member, I will:
- Reduce or manage any conflict and confrontation; for example, by not using inflammatory language.
- Support and encourage families to put the best interests of any children first.
- Act with honesty, integrity and objectivity.
- Help clients understand and manage the potential long-term financial and emotional consequences of decisions.
- Listen to and treat everyone with respect and without judgment.
- Use my experience and knowledge to guide clients through the options available to them.
- Continually develop my knowledge and skills.
- Use the Resolution Guides to Good Practice in my day-to-day work.
And I will work with other Resolution members to uphold this Code and ensure it is at the heart of everything I do.
