Divorce Mediation Training
Whether you’re a beginner, a seasoned practitioner, or a person interested in exploring what mediation has to offer, we have designed this course to provide you with the tools and techniques you will need to be a successful mediator.
We are committed to providing the best training experience possible. To that end we strive for an individualized component and offer small classes – usually a maximum of 12 students. (Typical mediation trainings have 25-35 students in the same class.) We can assure you that the experience you’ll have in our small classroom will be well worth your time and money.
We are now authorized to award 33 Catagory I credits for Massachusetts social workers for completion of divorce mediation training.
During the five-day course, we provide opportunities for you to practice what you are learning. Classes are small in order to create a lively, interactive environment. We focus on the skills you need and you practice putting them to use, so that you leave the course with a firm grasp of successful mediation techniques.
This training satisfies Massachusetts Rule 8 training requirements for mediators. Since January of 2005, Massachusetts has coupled with the Uniform Rules of Dispute Resolution – known as “Rule 8”. This Rule established court-connected alternative dispute resolution, which includes mediation in the Massachusetts court system. Our Divorce Mediation Training of 40 hours exceeds the 30 hour Rule 8 minimum, and our Divorce Mediation Training covers advanced divorce mediation.
