It is a blend of presentational material and experiential learning opportunities. Upon completion of the training, participants will have a working knowledge of the mediation process and its various applications both in and out of the Court system.

Our Divorce Mediation Training will offer the trainee a full complement of skills and information necessary to assist people through the often difficult process of divorce. As future practioners, trainees will have the opportunity to explore the psychological, financial, and legal aspects of divorce in New York State. This is an interactive training and will allow participants to mediate cases through role plays, examine agreements and engage in dialogue with trainers throughout the training.
