Language Matters: A discussion on the importance of changing the language of family separation
Hannah Cox, family law barrister at 42BR, and 42BR's Anne Dillon, barrister and mediator, are joined by Helen Adam, mediator and chair of the Family Solutions Group to discuss the Family Solutions Group’s Language Matters report and consider our role as practitioners in shaping the experience of families through our use of language.
The need for a major change in culture has been recognised by Sir Andrew McFarlane, President of the Family Division:
“It’s blindingly obvious that the language we have been using is not appropriate.”
“The real change will come by each one of us thinking about it, and then changing practice.”
