Conflict Resolution and Negotiation Skills - Level 2 Training for Collaborative Practitioners


Halifax Central Library, Creative Lab, Halifax, Nova Scotia

About This Event

Collaborative Professionals need to develop strong skills in conflict resolution and negotiation so they can help clients shift find workable solutions that reflect what matters most to the clients and their family in transition. Working in Collaborative Practice requires us to engage with our clients differently. Lawyers need to learn how to support client-centred decision-making while meeting our duty to provide advocacy and sound legal advice. Collaborative mental health professionals need to understand the negotiation side of the collaborative case, while managing and supporting the healthy expression of what matters on the emotional, psychological level. Collaborative Financial Professionals need to learn how to gather and explain financial information as a neutral team-member, and to help generate options without making recommendations. It’s complicated!

At This Course, You Will Learn How To:

  • Engage with your client in a way that supports a collaborative approach to decision-making
  • Identify and help clients express their values and interests
  • Work with emotion and bridge impasse
  • Help generate options that focus on the unique needs of the parties
  • Realize the full potential of working as a Collaborative Team
  • Manage conflict productively
  • Help create durable, lasting agreements

Collaborative Practice Training involves both process and skills training.  This course is open to all lawyers, mental health and financial professionals interested in becoming a collaborative practitioner.

If you have not yet taken an Introductory course in Collaborative Practice, consider attending the Introductory course scheduled for September 18 and 28 in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Collaborative Law Practice is growing internationally, with practice groups in every province of Canada and state of the USA.  There are groups in Europe, Southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand.  The International Academy of Collaborative Professionals is the international body promoting Collaborative practice.  www.collaborativepractice.com
