What we’ve been up to…

Training: Tuesday, December 6, 2016 Creating a Culture of Respect for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender People: A Workshop for Family Mediators/Arbitrators/Parenting Coordinators with the Honourable Nancy Flatters and Becky Van Tassel, Calgary. This one day course was well received and we are taking it on the road to Edmonton in May!

Training: January 18 – 21, 2017, Meeting With Children, Dr. Lorri Yasenik and Jon Graham, Calgary, AB. This four day course about Hearing Children in the ADR process was sold out and a highly successful training for the participants. The question is not WHETHER children should be heard, but rather HOW TO ensure children’s voices are safely and effectively heard as part of an ADR process. A child-centred approach views the child as central to the family system, and provides strategies for working with parents to include the child’s concerns. We plan to offer this course again, if possible.
