After a hiatus in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the CFLCW Training Committee is set to conduct the 2021 edition of Building Blocks in August.
August 12-13, 2021 | 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM
Center for Graduate Studies, Carroll University
Online registration available beginning May 15, 2021.
Training Committee Chair Megann Hendrix, JD advised the Board of Directors on March 25 that the trainers were set to resume in-person training given the advances made in vaccinations in Wisconsin.
The Committee is also working with the School of Graduate Studies at Carroll University in Waukesha to resume the sessions.
CFLCW debuted its acclaimed interdisciplinary basic training “The Building Blocks of Collaborative Family Law” in 2004. The training committee regularly updates the session content to include new material and concepts.
In 2016, the Council created the Collaborative Academy – a dynamic new extension of this initial training that continues throughout the first year of Collaborative Practice.
In 2017 training on the emerging “facilitator model” and the “one coach model”, was added to the curriculum and in 2019, a single case study was developed that is followed though out the two-day session.
Attendees in the session learn about how the various models are organized, the basic steps in the process, how to effectively conduct client interviews and meetings and ways to avoid impasse.
Members are encouraged to attend the session as a “refresher” course, which is offered on a reduced cost to existing members.
