BIDC Request for New Board Member Applications
February 15, 2022
The BIDC unites an interdisciplinary community of professionals working in the complex realm of divorce, family law, parental responsibility and mental health. Our mission is to improve outcomes for families by providing training, consultation and community to professionals who navigate family law issues. From its beginnings in the 1970s, the BIDC has supported the Boulder professional community with programming on various aspects of divorce and child custody proceedings. The interdisciplinary approach is at the heart of the BIDC’s commitments. By educating members on issues of law, psychology and evaluation, each professional develops a well-rounded understanding of the issues and systems impacting their clients’ lives. Members come from many disciplines, including social work, psychology and law.
