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.

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.
