“The very last place a family or parents need to go to resolve a legal matter is the courthouse. Families do not repair or reform in a competitive system where blaming is profitable and formalities and volume control the discussions. In mediation, parents and families are given the space, comfort and freedom to discuss what matters to them, to work as a team to find solutions and to have a productive discussion about a positive future.” –Wendy Williamson, Esq., Miles Mediator & Trainer
Skilled and passionate domestic mediators are greatly needed in our communities and justice system. Mediating with families is equally challenging and rewarding. For those who want to contribute directly to the welfare of families and children, consider completing the domestic mediation training at Miles.
The course offers extensive training about:
- mediating family cases
- family restructuring and co-parenting
- challenges facing families and attorneys in managing the complex issues requiring solutions
- the skills necessary to lead a constructive conversation in the midst of a destructive family event.
Among mediators, domestic mediators are the “special forces” who are willing to face the greatest challenges, required to prove their endurance and resilience and courageous enough to step into the fire to bring people to safety.
Upon completion of the 5-day course, participants will have the tools and skills to begin mediating domestic disputes. Upon completion of the course and the practicum, participants will be eligible to register as a domestic mediator with the Georgia Office of Dispute Resolution. Miles will facilitate this process.
The training program is led by esteemed Miles neutral and trainer Wendy Williamson, Esq.
