Our foundation course is almost ready!
Our 40 Hour Basic Family Negotiation and Mediation Training: Theory and Skills runs this year May 2, 3, 6-8 2013. We still have a few spots open.
Our speakers this year include Hilary Linton, Dr. Barbara Benoliel, Elizabeth Hyde, Herschel Fogelman, Brahm Siegel, Phil Epstein, Seema Jain, Regina Thomson, Christine Kim, Tara Noble, and more!
Between 50-150 people take this course every year. We work with professional actors for the role plays, and each student receives on-on-one coaching from experienced mediators.
Not all will go on to become mediators– but those who take it tell us how much they valued what they learned. And how much of it they will be able to apply in their day to day professional and even personal lives.
We design and deliver training that is based on principles. We believe that the best mediators are those who really understand what causes conflict, what makes it escalate, and what can help it de-escalate.
We believe that in order to be an effective mediator, you must understand negotiation theory and tactics. And the dynamics of intimate partner control, coercion and violence.
We believe every person offering services in the family law dispute resolution field must be patient, non-judging curious and open to learning what the parties need to create a strong, fair and lasting agreement.
Mediation is a fair, balanced, informed and safe place to have difficult conversations. Or teachings seek to help all of our students achieve this standard in theory and practice.
