Transformed my practice, my perspective and results for my clients!

"Participating in the Family Resolution Institute Mediation Training has transformed my practice, my perspective and results for my clients. This training has given me a deeper understanding of why clients may get stuck, and now I have the skills to facilitate deeper discussions through empathy, patience, and flexibility. The knowledge and skills of the trainers made this training fun and interactive. The role plays allowed me to put my new skills to use and into my practice. Thank you!"

The Perfect Balance of Teaching and Hands-on Practice!

"This mediation training was fabulous. It was clear, concise, and had the perfect balance of teaching and hands-on practice. For those of us who dread practice and fear failure, they are warm, supportive, encouraging, and non-judgmental. For collaborative professionals, the presenters model teamwork as they balance one another perfectly as needs to happen in a collaborative team. This training was worth every penny and every second spent."

Instructors are Extremely Knowledgeable!

"I attended the 4-day mediation training in May and have to say it was one of the best experiences I have had in my legal career.  The instructors are extremely knowledgeable and well respected in their field.  The hands-on sessions were incredibly beneficial and eye opening to what it really means to be a neutral mediator.  The skills I learned will not only help me grow my mediation practice but also taught me how to deal with my litigation clients more effectively.  Thank you again for the amazing opportunity to take part in this incredible learning experience!"

About FRI

Family Resolution Institute is an education and training company focused on teaching people how to resolve any style or degree of conflict through Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) techniques.  We teach processes and techniques for settling disputes without litigation.  Sometimes referred to as Consensual Dispute Resolution, ADR allows those in a dispute, disagreement or conflict to come up with creative solutions that may be better for all involved and that a court may not necessarily be legally allowed to impose.

Meet The Trainers

One of FRI’s differentiators from other mediation trainings is the fact that our trainers are all very seasoned mediators and are actively engaged throughout the entire training. You get personal and immediate feedback from three different angles of expertise. Each of the Family Resolution Institute Trainers brings a unique perspective with decades of mediation and training experience.  Our trainers, Shawn Skillin, Shawn Weber and Robin Seigle provide a high quality, fun and immersive training.
