40 Hour Mediation Training Registration

We are pleased to offer a 5 day, 40 hour Mediation Training. This Training will provide prospective Collaborative Professionals (lawyers, financial professionals, family specialists) and those wishing to refresh their skills with the opportunity to learn and practice interest-based mediation in a co-facilitation model. This training meets the requirements of the Association of Collaborative Family Professionals (Edmonton) for registration with the Association as a Collaborative Professional.

The course will be 40 hours, and will offer instruction on interest-based mediation in a co-facilitation model. Our Mediation Course is intended to mirror what Collaborative Family Professionals provide at 4-way meetings which is tailored toward the collaborative process.

The benefits of collaborative practice are vast and include:

  • empowering the parties to resolve their issues and concerns,
  • become decision makers in their own family transition
  • emphasizing on the needs of their children
  • ability to promote healthy relationships, families and communities

This training will run on January 16 & 17, 2020, and January 22 – 24, 2020 from 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM each day. The instructors are Joanne Munro (www.silverliningmediation.com) and Sharon Wilson (www.stoptheconflict.com).
