Family mediation focuses on helping divorced or separated parents, and their children, find relief from conflict, stress and anger. Volunteering as a family mediator helps to provide a safe space for co-parents to make decisions about their relationship with each other and to discuss their responsibilities to their children – in a more cooperative setting than going to court. This course covers how to mediate conflicts that involve family issues, with special attention being placed on the issues and needs of children in co-parenting situations, how to screen for domestic violence, and eliminating implicit bias in family law.
