Recorded webinars are always available on our online teachable platform.  Here are just a couple:
 A Scholarly Review of Mediation Models with Dr. Desmond Ellis (1.5 hours)

There is great diversity in the field of family mediation today. The co-presence of a variety of family mediation models presents practicing family mediators with the choice of using one model - the one they were trained to use - or use contributions from more than one model. This webinar is designed to help practicing family mediators ground their choice in a comparison and evaluation of the following four influential models of mediation: INTEREST BASED, TRANSFORMATIVE, THERAPEUTIC, and INSIGHT.  Dr. Ellis provides an overview of each of these models, focusing on the “Heart of each Model” and “Noteworthy Concerns of the Model”.

Preparing Mediation Reports with Rhoda I. Dobler, Q.C. (2 hours)
This webinar addresses the various approaches to writing mediation reports/memoranda.  Many different styles have evolved, sometimes driven by the issues in dispute or even the professional background of the mediator.  We seldom receive opportunities to review the numerous styles and approaches to report preparation. In this webinar many different approaches to mediation report writing will be discussed and shared to increase understanding and to further develop report writing skills. We will examine the components of a mediation report and identify some tips to effectively communicate agreements reached, as well as pitfalls to avoid in written reports.
