Developing a Profitable and Satisfying Peacemaker Practice: Getting More Collaborative and Mediation Cases
Woody has been giving this 2-day Workshop around the country for many years to rave reviews (see his website www.mostenmediation.com). He starts with the idea that each mediator needs to develop their own “peacemaker signature”. He then has everyone do a “self-survey” and then helps you develop from an “Apprentice” (unconscious incompetence) to a Novice then to a Practitioner and finally to an “Artist” (unconscious competence).
Woody’s whole approach will give us all new ways to work and to grow our practices.

MORNING: Pre-Nups and Postnuptial Agreements
Trainers: KEN NEUMANN & DONNA PETRUCELLI
The emotional issues that always are part of the mediation of prenuptial agreements will be detailed and then dovetailed with the legal points that are usually covered. We will discuss the different circumstances related to living together, death, and divorce. The issues of full disclosure and the role of Review Attorneys will also be explored.
AFTERNOON: Complex Child Support Arrangements
Trainers: ROD WELLS & KEN NEUMANN
The child support guidelines are not for everyone. In mediation, many couples work out complex expense sharing agreements. Other couples use maintenance instead of child support because of their tax situation. This training will give you the tools to help couples who want these more cooperative, but complex, approaches.
