Family law judges often tell parties “you are the expert on your lives” and encourage them to work out their divorce, yet they are still at the courthouse. Would you like to learn the skills to support your clients in finding the best solution for them outside of court? Would you like to work as a team with professionals that you trust and respect to assist your clients in creating the optimal outcome for them?

Join us to learn about Collaborative Practice, an interdisciplinary process in which parties and professionals collaborate to negotiate a mutually acceptable resolution that reflects the most important priorities of the parties and for their family. In this training, you will learn about:

‐ Philosophy and principles of Collaborative Practice
‐ How the integration of the roles of Collaborative team members benefits      the parties
‐ Stages of a Collaborative case
‐ Streamlined information gathering
‐ Creating the foundation for agreement by clarifying priorities
‐ Client‐centered option development and negotiation

This course is intended for financial, mental health and legal professionals who are looking for a different way to work with clients in conflict.

This lively and engaging training includes both lectures and experiential learning exercises. The course meets IACP Minimum Standards for Introductory Interdisciplinary Collaborative Practice Trainings.
