Responding Effectively to Conflict, in the Workplace and at Home (03/11/2021)

Program Number: 3147 Presenter: Robert A. Baruch Bush, J.D.

The large majority of life disrupting conflicts occur in two arenas: families, and workplaces. In both, conflict can be either a negative or a positive force, depending on how it is handled. If we handle it reactively, it usually becomes negative. But if we handle it by responding rather than reacting, it can become positive and constructive. It can actually add value to relationships whether at work or at home. For practicing attorneys, the impact of negative conflict at home or in the office can be a serious problem. This seminar explains what it means to respond rather than react in conflict situations, and why doing so has powerful constructive impacts.

Learning Objectives: • To understand the dynamics of conflict interaction in general, as documented by research in many fields. • To understand the positive potential in conflict, despite the

Parenting Amidst Divorce in New York – Will Parenting Ever Be “Routine” After 2020? (02/26/2021)

Program Number: 3126 Presenter: Nikki Bruno, EdM., Alan Feigenbaum, Esq., Sophie Jacobi-Parisi, Esq.

Before the pandemic of 2020, contested custody disputes over how decisions are to be made between divorcing parents could generally be segregated into two buckets: (1) the “major” decisions, such as where to enroll a child in school, medical treatment, or whether or not to have a child treated by a therapist; and (2) the “routine daily decisions” – a sacred collection of day-to-day decisions that a divorced parent could make on his or her own without needing to seek the consent of the other parent. After the Covid-19 outbreak, the once, seemingly defined bucket of “routine daily decisions” has become a gray area. New York courts faced with making a determination about custody must consider the “best interests of the child”. Making that determination after the pandemic presents a host of new challenges. What was once taken for granted – taking your child to socialize with a friend, taking your child to school, or

The Perils of Prenups: When is a Prenup Harmful, When is it Helpful, and How to Draft a Constructive One (06/26/2020)

Program Number: 30169 Presenter: Chaim Steinberger, Esq.

Prenuptial agreements are becoming more and more popular even as most people recognize that a prenup often hurts the betrotheds’ relationship and can cause the relationship itself to fail. In many instances a prenup accomplishes nothing so there's no reason to incur this risk. Yet in other instances, a prenup might actually be crucial. This presentation will explore the times that a prenup is not necessary and those times when it is; the harms a typical prenup causes; and how to prepare and negotiate one so that it improves, rather than harms, the betrotheds’ relationship.
