Training with Susan Boyan and Kathleen Bellamano
We are offering an 8 week, online parenting coordination training.
Parenting Coordination is a child- centred dispute resolution process for families with children who are separated or divorced and continue to have unresolved conflict. Generally, it is a process that includes coaching, and education, consensus building and, when authorized, decision making. Families can enter parenting coordination by contract or court order, depending on the laws in their area.
Who is this course for? It is for professionals who wish to become parenting coordinators and work with high-conflict divorce families. Generally, course participants should be practicing lawyers, dispute resolution professionals or mental health professionals with many years of experience working with families. Qualifications to practice as a parenting coordinator vary by region and additional training or skills may be required in your jurisdiction.
When: January 25-March 19, 2020 (8 weeks)
Information: There are two options, a 24 hour course or a 40 hour version depending upon the requirements of your local jurisdiction and/or statutes. 24 and 40 hr versions meet the training requirements of the AFCC. Participants must attend all live meetings, review all recordings, and complete assignments in order to receive their certificate of completion.
Course Schedule: Both courses will include self-directed learning, quizzes, assignments and live weekly sessions on Fridays from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm Eastern Daylight Time. The 40 hr version will focus more on facilitating agreements, writing final decision and interviewing children.
