A Gathering of Mediators: Part 2

Wednesday, October 16, 2013

Over October 3-6, 2013, both principals of LDRC attended the second annual meeting of the Academy off Professional Family Mediators (APFM), in Denver, CO, of which we are both founding members. While mixing with an international group of dedicated family and divorce mediators, we attended many hours of programming on topics ranging from risk and resilience in children of separation and divorce, to high conflict mediations, the science of forgiveness, bankruptcy and collaborative approaches to marital agreements.

As this group matures, the devotion of its members to finding better ways to serve families in crisis continues to impress, as does the intensity of APFM’s focus on broadly defined continuing professional education. By speaking with, and watching demonstrations of, other expert mediators we learn new skills, stretch existing ones and accumulate greater insight into our field. Applying this learning in our practice cannot help but enhance our ability to provide a higher level of mediation service, always our goal.

We look forward to a long association with and participation in this important new organization.
