Marsha Kline Pruett, M.S., Ph.D., M.S.L., will join the MAGAL conference!
Dr. Kline Pruett was one of the reporters for the AFCC Think Tank on Shared Parenting, as published in the April 2014 edition of the Family Court Review – a balanced view of the issues – and will join our panel on Shared Parenting. Dr. Kline Pruett’s current research looks at family dynamics and development, both normative and non-normative, with a specialization in the promotion of healthy child and family development during life transitions, particularly those transitions related to adverse events or circumstances. Her clinical research incorporates preventive interventions, consultation, program design and evaluation. Another current area of Dr. Kline Pruett’s research and intervention concentrates on increasing father involvement with their children. The Supporting Father Involvement project aims to reduce child abuse and neglect and enhance family well-being through an intervention that encourages father involvement and couple co-parenting (among married and unmarried parents) in family resource centers.

7.0 credits for Psychologists and CPCS/CAFL; Social Work, MAMFT and MMCEP credits pending.
