In-depth Innovative Learning

Introductory Collaborative Law Training (Spring 2015)

March 19-20, 2015 (Thursday and Friday)

Now is a great time to become trained in Collaborative Law. This Collaborative Law training is required as a membership requirement by most Collaborative Law professional organizations worldwide.

Taught by a highly experienced interdisciplinary team of trainer-practitioners, at this highly-acclaimed training, you will learn:

  • Skills and procedures for handling a Collaborative Law case from beginning to end.
  • What makes Collaborative Law so different from conventional practice–it’s not about “being nice.”
  • The progressive stages of the Collaborative Law process.
  • The roles and function of each Collaborative professional team member, including the lawyer, financial specialist, coach and child specialist.
  • Essential insights to help you understand and work in the Collaborative Law model, and to help you facilitate negotiations of agreements using a consensual client-centered process.
  • How to successfully navigate through some of the challenging situations and interventions to keep on track.
  • An introduction to interest-based negotiations, facilitation and other skills to bring a collaborative case to successful conclusion.
  • How to work effectively with an interdisciplinary team.
  • The emotional dynamics of conflict and of marital dissolution, and how to work with those dynamics.
  • Ethics and ethical issues that face the Collaborative professional.
  • How to develop a successful Collaborative practice.
  • How to work under the Uniform Collaborative Law Act (ch. 7.77 RCW).

All attendees receive a comprehensive manual on Collaborative Practice and a CD that contains valuable checklists, forms, handouts, and articles. This skills-focused training is taught by an interdisciplinary Collaborative team (lawyers, coach, and financial specialist), and includes demonstrations and hands-on practice.

What Makes This Training Different. This two-day training is taught by an internationally-recognized training team. The trainers have extensive experience conducting basic and advanced trainings. Their unique curriculum is interesting, interactive, and based on adult learning principles. Each of the trainers practice Collaborative Law nearly every work day.

This training meets the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals (IACP) Interim Minimum Standards for
Introductory Collaborative Practice Trainings and Introductory Interdisciplinary Collaborative Practice Trainings, a requirement for membership in many local Collaborative Law organizations.
