Course Details

This course survey areas of interest to the family case mediator. In this course you will be introduced to our unique 3 Meeting Approach to Divorce Mediation. We begin our journey with a survey of Career Choices in ADR, followed by a discussion of the current state of the business side of ADR, followed by a deep dive into business aspects of divorce mediation.

Also we included a section on marketing for mediators wanting to learn new ways to grow their practice. Here we explore proven methods to convert your website, blog, and social media properties, into powerful relational marketing tools for growing your business.

This course would not be complete without lectures on the three core areas of mediator continuing education; ethics, interpersonal violence, and diversity. Our lecture on ethics outlines and discusses the Florida standards of conduct for certified mediators, including the modern Model Standards of Conduct for mediators. Think of our discussion on mediator ethics as a reminder of the rules, but with real life scenarios.

Our interpersonal violence lectures will increase your awareness of, and sensitivity to, domestic violence. So we explore some of the ethical issues faced by mediators in cases where domestic violence is suspected. We also explore how to spot domestic violence and explore some of the root causes to this epidemic.

We close the lectures with an exploration of diversity, and how mediators and other stakeholders may leverage diversity in the resolution and management of disputes.

Course participants are encouraged to actively participate in the peer discussions during this course.

We sincerely hope that you enjoy our presentations.
