Florida Collaborative Trainers

Florida Collaborative Trainers offer a unique two-day training in the Interdisciplinary Team Model of Collaborative Law. The team is comprised of two attorneys, one neutral mental health professional (MHP) and one neutral financial professional (FP).The training focuses on the skill sets of each profession and the integration of those skills in the collaborative process.

This distinctive and dynamic presentation provides a thorough understanding of the collaborative divorce process from its inception to its conclusion. The training addresses the roles of each discipline, individually and as a team, and includes negotiation, communication and team building skills, ethical considerations, the emotional, legal, financial and psychological components of divorce and the dynamics of interpersonal relationships.


Training modalities include demonstrations set in "real time," didactic power-point presentations and interactive discussions with the attendees. Materials are available on CD and online and include, but are not limited to; collaborative practice forms, protocols of practice for each discipline, necessary legal documents, articles of interest and a bibliography of relevant readings.

Although originating in the area of family law, this alternative dispute resolution process is readily adapted to many other areas of law.
