About the Program
The Parenting Evaluation Training Program provides seminars and consultation in ongoing cases involving high conflict family law litigation to mental health professionals and lawyers. More information about other areas of Dr. Benjamin's practice can be found at his profile on LinkedIn.
Through ongoing trainings and the publication of Family Evaluation in Custody Litigation: Reducing Risks of Ethical Infractions and Malpractice (Benjamin & Gollan, 2003, American Psychological Association Press) and Family Evaluation in Custody Litigation, Second Edition: Promoting Optimal Outcomes and Reducing Ethical Risks (Benjamin, Beck, Shaw & Geffner, 2018, American Psychological Association Press), word has spread about PETP's protocol for conducting parenting evaluations throughout jurisdictions in the United States and Canada. Workshops and trainings continue to occur in new jurisdictions.
After 27 years in operation, PETP has prepared more than 120 accomplished mental health and law professionals to work effectively as evaluators and treatment personnel. Using the protocols developed by the program, they have learned to protect the interests of vulnerable children and help resolve high-conflict family law litigation. A list of PETP graduates now conducting parenting evaluations and co-parent counseling in Western Washington is available on the "Graduates" page of this Web site.
For those who are visiting this website for a clinical case referral, please refer any high conflict family law evaluation cases or co-parenting psychotherapy cases to the PETP graduates that are available on the "Graduates" page.
Because of new duties, the only individual training that Dr. Benjamin now provides is intensive tutorial consultation for those who would like to become certified by PETP. Please forward a copy of your license, and a resume or curriculum vitae if you would like to pursue certification.
