Basic Interdisciplinary Collaborative Practice Training
Collaborative Practice (the newer approach to family law) differs from litigation, pre-trial settlement, and even divorce mediation. It involves a Collaborative team approach in which three types of professionals join forces—without reliance on threats, demands, or the court—to support a couple through the divorce process and toward a new post-divorce relationship and way of life. Attorneys, mental health professionals, and financial professionals interested in Collaborative Practice begin by attending this two-day Basic Training seminar highlighting the important, yet subtle ways in which each of their roles in a Collaborative divorce differs from their more traditional roles. Join us in learning about this dynamic, empowering, and effective model of practice.
