Two-Day Introductory Interdisciplinary Collaborative Training
January 19th and 20th 2024
This training, offered for the twentieth-first time, is designed for attorneys, mental health and financial professionals. Trainees will develop advanced professional skills to become part of an interdisciplinary team providing divorcing couples with a collaborative divorce process. You will learn what each team professional contributes to the process and how each professional’s role integrates with the process. We will review the collaborative divorce process and written materials associated with this client-centered practice.
At the conclusion of this two-day training, you will be able to:
- Define the roles of professionals on the team.
- Discuss three difficult client situations and strategies used to intervene successfully.
- Identify the hallmarks of a collaborative divorce process that differ from other divorce options.
- Describe two elements of the paradigm shift.
- Discuss ways in which the coach/communications specialist can assist the couple to overcome emotions, improve communication and honor each party’s interests.
- Differentiate the role of child specialist as a neutral and explain two ways this unique role is used to assist parents and children during a time of family transition.
- State one boundary limitation of the mental health professional.
- Name two situations in which collaborative divorce is not appropriate.
Lunch is included for both days, with morning and afternoon refreshments. One-hour working lunch break and two 15-minute breaks will not be counted toward CE time awarded. Course completion certificates will be awarded at the end of the course in exchange for a completed evaluation form.
