2-Day Interdisciplinary Introductory/Refresher Collaborative Training

This is a 2-DAY Interdisciplinary Introductory/Refresher Collaborative Training in the One Coach/Neutral Facilitator/Neutral Mental Health Professional Model

What would it feel like to help clients divorce peacefully, privately, and with dignity?  Wouldn’t it be great to consistently work with professionals whom you know, trust, like, and respect?  Learn how to offer Collaborative services and get involved in your Collaborative Law community in this highly engaging two-day Introductory Interdisciplinary Collaborative Family Law training.  This course is intended for attorneys, mental health professionals, financial professionals, mediators, and others who believe there is a better way to help clients through difficult times.

At our two-day Introductory Training, participants will do the following:

  • Learn how and why collaborative practice was developed

  • Discover the essential paradigm shift that allows collaborative professionals to succeed

  • Review the Uniform Collaborative Law Act or jurisdiction-specific statutes/rules

  • Explore and enhance option development techniques

  • Identify the distinction between interest-based discussion and positional bargaining

  • Obtain a step-by-step guide on how a collaborative case typically proceeds

  • Participate in discipline-specific break-outs and Q & A sessions

  • Engage in a discussion on collaborative practice and professional ethics

  • Exchange ideas on marketing to foster the  development of a collaborative practice

  • Learn how to grow and re-energize your local collaborative community


We know that many professionals have taken the intro training before and may only be interested in the advanced trainings when they come to town. We offer advanced trainings later in the year, but have found that experienced collaborative professionals repeat the intro training as well. Feedback from these professionals has informed us that they feel a refresher in the process is helpful, that they learn new skills, and update their knowledge on the law and creative ways to help their clients divorce collaboratively.
