We have given 150 divorce and civil mediation trainings. Our
divorce mediation training is 40 hours long and takes place
over four and a half days. It has been approved by the Association
for Conflict Resolution, the only organization in the U.S. to
approve mediation training. Because many people who take our
mediation training plan to do civil mediation, we include a
workplace or real estate dispute which illustrates the differences
between divorce and civil mediation.
Our mediation training classes offer five different ways to
learn each of the ten essential mediation skills: 1) you listen
to us describe the skill, 2) you read about the skill in your
mediation manual, 3) you write about the skill in your mediation
manual, 4) you watch us demonstrate the new mediation skill,
and 5) you practice the mediation skill in a role play, where
you have an opportunity to be both client and mediator.
We take you in small steps through a divorce mediation, from
the initial meeting with clients through the final "signing
ceremony." We show you how to move clients through the
legal and emotional phases of their dispute, while staying on
the task of negotiating a legally binding agreement. All of
the mediation skills which we teach apply equally to team and
You receive our mediation manual, which contains all of the
forms we have developed over the past 25 years for running an
efficient mediation practice. We also give you a sample Memorandum
of Understanding which contains the language that we use in
mediated agreements. At the conclusion of our mediation training,
you receive a mediation certificate, suitable for framing. During
the mediation training, we discuss the steps you need to take
to set up and promote your mediation practice.
Although the majority of our workshop participants are attorneys
and mental health professionals, others, including financial
planners, educators, and human resource specialists, take our
training as well.
