The Collaborative Academy is the Training and Continuing Education portal for the Collaborative Family Law Council of Wisconsin. The Academy was created to help new CFLCW members and practitioners learn from each other and interact with experienced practitioner mentors.
The Collaborative Academy is also the second step in your collaborative training. Five or six times during the year, Collaborative Academy members participate in periodic webinars led by experienced CFLCW members on practice tips and issues that arise in the Collaborative Process. Each topic has been formulated by those who have experience in the collaborative process.
Graduates of Building Blocks are automatically enrolled in the Collaborative Academy. All CFLCW members may attend!
A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing
The Spring 2017 Issue of the Collaborative Review, in an article entitled A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing, the author discusses the challenges professionals face as they make the shift for a collaborative mindset, and process, in their practice; a shift that is extremely easy to discuss in casual conversation yet difficult in actual application.
The article can serve as a road map for you as you begin your practice, or re-energize it after any number of delays or variations.
Beginning in 2022, A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing will be a tool in the Introductory Training of Collaborative Practice held by CFLCW as "Building Blocks."
