HOW IS THE REPORT PREPARED?
To prepare a report, we require either the written consent of all guardians or a court order. The author of the report will speak briefly with each of the guardians to identify the matters at issue and any sensitivities unique to the child. Each child will be interviewed twice, ideally once while in the care of one guardian and once while in the care of the other guardian. Reports are non-evaluative, meaning no psychological assessment can or will be conducted and no recommendations will be issued. However, reports will reference the child’s demeanour and body language during the interview in order to provide essential context to the child’s answers.
