The intensity of the course curriculum is designed to help forge a clear sense of the role of professional mediator as distinct from the role of lawyer, judge, counsellor, therapist, or other professional.
This program includes various components designed to facilitate the learning experience: demonstrations of the mediation process, video-recorded presentations, lecture and discussion, extensive participant simulation exercises with trainer feedback, informal individual consultations, extensive course materials with all the forms necessary for practice, outlines of the mediation process, and detailed checklists of the issues to be addressed in most cases.
The course will address major issues confronted in the divorce process, as well as many other family conflicts, including childcare arrangements, financial issues, property division, and tax planning.
