The Collaborative Family Law Council of Wisconsin (CFLCW) debuted its acclaimed interdisciplinary basic training “The Building Blocks of Collaborative Family Law” in 2004. Since then, the training content has been consistently updated with new material and concepts. In 2016, we created the Collaborative Academy – a dynamic new extension of your initial training that continues throughout your first year of your Collaborative Practice.  In 2017, we added training on the emerging models of the Collaborative Practice, such as the “facilitator model” and “one-coach model.”  For 2018 the training was up[dated with actual case “demos” and a greater emphasis upon the practical application of the Collaborative Process.

 

 

Building Blocks is the initial component of the training required of Collaborative Professionals. It is then followed by the 5 Collaborative Academy continuing education sessions on the practical aspects of Collaborative Practice. The sessions begin about 60 days following the Building Blocks session, are held approximately every other month, and each are 60 minutes in length. The Academy offers a total of 5 continuing education credits, 1 of which is an Ethics credit. Participation in Building Blocks and the Academy will provide a comprehensive and detailed exposure to the Collaborative Process.
