Our 40 hour Basic Training offers an introduction to the emotional, legal, and financial problems of divorce, as well as an overview of fundamental mediation theories and techniques. Didactic instruction is balanced with extensive role-playing exercises, case studies, and opportunities for Q&A.
Our interdisciplinary staff draws from their diverse professional backgrounds, offering unique perspectives that enrich the training experience. We focus on the “private practice model” and offer ongoing support to our trainees while they develop as professional mediators.
In addition to the basics outlined above, this training will cover some common tax issues, the impact of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, and the challenges of working with different kinds of retirement plans. We also provide two hours of Domestic Violence training, as required by the Academy of Professional Family Mediators, The New York State Council on Divorce Mediation, the New Jersey Association of Professional Mediators and the Association for Conflict Resolution.
