In 2023, Lisa and Vincent launched T.I.I.C, an innovative and unique program that provides reportable counselling in a case management model, that seeks to support families at a very sensitive and potentially distressing time of family change.

T.I.I.C can provide expert opinion and direction to families and their lawyers as very early intervention after separation, or by agreement after first filing with the Court or by way of Court Orders.

Our experience is that by having early information, discussed constructively with parents and their lawyers together, whilst allowing lawyers to maintain their ethical responsibilities to their clients, but before the escalation of litigation, provides the most constructive environment to facilitate change and for the parties to move forward with a child focussed approach at the forefront.

The T.I.I.C program requires families to commit to two separate conferences.

The First Intake Conference will engage each parent and legal representative together, to provide both parties (separately) the opportunity to constructively include each parties views on the nature of the parent’s dispute and the child/ren’s exposure to it.

The Child Experts use this time to assess parents understanding of the child/ren’s needs in light of the separation and surrounding conflict, with recommendations regarding preliminary arrangements for the care of the child/ren and the child/ren’s needs.

Following the intake conference, the parents and child/ren may have the opportunity to engage with Lisa and/or Vincent in reportable counselling in order to further strengthen and support the relationship between the parents, supervise and assess the progress of any recommended arrangements, and continue to engage with children regarding their needs, attachments and views.

The Review Conference will occur six weeks later. Lisa and Vincent will use the time at the Review Conference with each parent and their legal representative to provide feedback regarding the child/ren’s views on the family conflict and separation as a platform to dialogue about the child/ren’s unique experiences of separation into further deliberations and arrangements.

Not only will the parents be provided with information and recommendations around parenting time, but also recommendations around any further assessment, treatment, or support that the family might benefit from.

T.I.I.C will provide immense benefit to families with exclusive access to Dr Tim Entwisle, the Federal Circuit and Family Courts of Australia’s most eminent psychiatrist, who will provide initial assessments in relation to allegations of risk, within the T.I.I.C model of a six week intervention program. In addition, one of Australia’s leading expert in child development and behaviours, Paediatrician, Dr Rick Jarman, has offered exclusive access to appointments for children that the Child Experts identify as requiring urgent attention.

In consultation with such key experts as Dr Entwisle and Dr Jarman, T.I.I.C is able to provide a platform upon which to discuss risk issues, or when there are urgent and special considerations for children, in pursuit of a better outcome of the family as a whole, and not just focusing on the needs, the rights and desires of individual family members.

The parties would be able to engage in further counselling should the parties wish to continue without any need for ongoing Court proceedings. Alternatively, should the matter not resolve, the parties have the option to engage the Child Experts in a T.I.I.C Summary Report.

For further information regarding intake times please contact the Family Law Parenting Centre on (03) 9583 3222.

The cost of T.I.I.C (six weeks all inclusive) is
$15,000 (Plus GST).
