Certified Family Mediator

Certified Family Mediator
$3,895.00 (USD)


Family mediation covers a broad spectrum of conflict that impacts families including parent/children disputes, mediating aging issues, probate and estate disputes and family business conflicts. The skills you will learn in this comprehensive program will help you mediate simple and complex cases using the empowerment based InAccord Conflict Analysis model as your template. The InAccord model teaches empowerment to the disputants through an empirical method of assessing power imbalances at the outset and educating disputants in conflict resolution communication that will serve them long after the dispute has been resolved. The model is predictable, measureable and focused on the unique needs of the parties to a dispute as opposed to the particular approach of any one mediator.
