Prince Edward Island, Canada

Jacinta Gallant is a respected Canadian collaborative lawyer, conflict trainer and innovator in her field. She is recognized internationally for her insightful approach to teaching and managing conflict, and has been welcomed as a trainer throughout Canada, the United States, Europe, Australia and Southeast Asia. Her law practice, Waterstone Law Group, focuses on collaborative practice, mediation and negotiation. As a student of Dr. Cheryl Picard, the founder of Insight Mediation, Jacinta has spent many years challenging her own thinking about conflict and applying Insight skills and approaches to her training and law practice. As a lifelong learner, she continues to study and apply the principles and practices of Insight. Jacinta’s ultimate goal as a trainer is to help collaborative professionals engage with clients in a more meaningful way, manage conflict more effectively, and get more enjoyment out of this important work.

The Our Family in Two Homes resources help clients engage in their own self-reflection and discovery, to support deeper dialogue in their collaborative or mediation process.
