2020 Family and Divorce Mediation Training

This event is closed. If you have any questions, please contact the planner directly.


This course explores conflicts that arise in the context of families, with emphasis on mediating issues involving separation and divorce. It is designed to provide participants with the skills and understanding needed to help parties reach agreement on matters such as child custody, visitation, division of property, distribution of debts, and support issues. Emotional issues, such as feelings of betrayal and loss, are examined, along with techniques for addressing them. Other issues such as high conflict families, domestic violence, spousal or child abuse, ethical issues in mediations, court mandated mediations, collaborative law, and mediator qualifications are also covered. Through a combination of lectures, demonstrations, discussions and role play exercises, participants will learn the fundamental concepts and basic skills that underlie the divorce and family mediation framework.

This 40 hour training seminar will qualify the licensed professional to serve as a mediator under the Louisiana Domestic Relations Mediator Qualifications Statute, Louisiana Revised Statutes Section 9:334. The training also qualifies mediators for the CDC Roster of Family Mediators in New Orleans. Further, fourteen (14) of these hours count towards the hours needed to be a parenting coordinator under the Louisiana Parenting Coordinator statute, La. R.S. 9:358.3.

This course is pending approval for 40 hours of Louisiana CLE credit.

Enrollment for this course is limited to 24 practitioners.

The seminar is also available to Loyola Law students as a for-credit course.
