Basic Collaborative Interdisciplinary Training

The Collaborative process continues to experience a huge growth of matrimonial cases resolved.  More and more these days, clients are calling our offices for information about a process that can assist them in their divorce without damaging everything that is most important to them. If you are interested in being trained in transforming how people resolve conflict, save this date to join us at the Cambria Hotel in White Plains on November 1, 2, and 4, 2019.

NYACP Annual Meeting - The Power and Challenge of Teams 

Join us on December 5th, 2019 at the Brae Burn Country Club as we join together to celebrate the year, conduct our annual business meeting, and experience Nancy Cameron and Yuval Berger's workshop on the "The Power and Challenge of Teams".

Practicing in Collaborative teams provides tremendous structural support for clients going through collaborative process.  Yes, this work can also be extremely challenging.  Team members may have different values which may be in conflict, may align to closely with their clients and may be triggered by interactions with clients or with other professionals.  This workshop will give skills and insights to help us identify challenges and engage constructively with the challenges in order to increase the power of our Collaborative teamwork.

Please mark your calendar to join us for this wonderful program and opportunity to network with colleagues and friends in December!

...We have designed a curriculum that includes basic Mediation and Collaborative Practice trainings for all professionals, monthly meetings, support groups, evening programs and periodic advanced programs. We welcome you to share our core value of excellence in Collaborative practice by training and learning with our Collaborative community.
