INTRODUCTION TO COLLABORATIVE PRACTICE – March 5 and 6, 2017 in Halifax

In the Collaborative process, lawyers act as advocates and advisors while facilitating an interest-based negotiation. The Collaborative lawyers work on a team with other collaboratively trained experts in the field of mental health, finance and child psychology.  The Participation Agreement is expanded to include the participation of all or some of these experts, depending on the nature of the dispute and the needs of the parties.

This training will teach you the process and touch on the skills required to work in Collaborative Practice.  Cost $500 plus HST = $575

SHIFTING FROM JUDGMENT TO CURIOSITY – AN ADVANCED SKILLS WORKSHOP FOR COLLABORATIVE PRACTITIONERS

March 7, 2017 at  Halifax Central Library    Cost:  $250 plus HST = $287.50

Being productively curious and dropping our judgments and assumptions require strong communication skills in asking questions and ensuring understanding.  When we bring these skills to our collaborative cases, we help our clients discover and articulate what really matters to them, allowing them to shift from a positional approach to the problem, gain perspective about what really matters, and find solutions that work for everyone affected by the separation.

ASKING INSIGHTFUL QUESTIONS – AN ADVANCED SKILLS WORKSHOP FOR COLLABORATIVE PRACTITIONERS
March 27, 2017 Halifax Central Library       Cost:  $250 plus HST = $287.50

Asking questions is one of the vital communication skills in our conflict resolution toolbox. We ask questions to aid in understanding. Weintend to be helpful and open, so when we get a defensive or resistant reaction, we wonder what went wrong? There are so many ways our questions can impact conflict and understanding. This workshop will help you ask better questions, – not just how to ask, but what to ask about.

  • Collaborative family law respects relationships.

  • Collaborative family law safeguards participants’ privacy, because proceedings are not public record.

  • Collaborative family law gives participants control over the pace of their process.
