Introduction to Divorce Mediation
A Resource for Professionals Working with Clientele Impacted by Divorce

We are a committed group of professionals who are determined to promote healthier methods of resolving conflict within families, schools, and workplaces. We have been creating a community of like-minded professionals dedicated to learning, sharing and teaching better methods of resolving conflict for more than a decade. We work as teachers, teams and collaborators. The one-day divorce mediation introductory program is part of our initiative to teach positive methods of communicating and resolving family conflict when spouses divorce.

As a method of resolving conflict in matters relevant to divorce, mediation has proved far less emotionally and physically stressful, less financially draining and far more likely to result in positive communication about future family matters, especially those involving children.

By joining our one-day divorce mediation educational experience, you will gain a clear understanding of why and how mediation is the best alternative for resolving conflict between spouses who have decided to end their marriage relationship. We will walk through the various types of mediation and techniques available, and delve into the issues that divorcing spouses need to address in order to have an uncontested divorce, i.e., a divorce in which all issues have been amicably resolved. These include issues pertaining to the spouses’ children, home, and financial matters.

While this one-day training experience will not certify you as a divorce mediator, it will provide you with a solid foundation for understanding what divorce mediation is, the step-by-step process involved in what makes it work well, how it benefits spouses who are divorcing, and by extension, their families and communities. It will also provide you with sufficient knowledge about divorce mediation to begin to offer support to others through the divorce process, and to help you decide if you would like to take the next step of joining our community as a CRT-Certified Divorce Mediator, and begin to accept divorce mediation cases.

If, after participating in the one-day Introductory Divorce Mediation Program, you decide that certification as a mediator is something you would like to pursue, we are here to support your decision by inviting you to attend our comprehensive 35 hour Divorce Mediation Certificate Program, which you can read about by clicking here: Divorce Mediation Certificate Program.
