Have you heard of the term collaborative practice? It is a cooperative, voluntary process to resolve divorce and other family law matters without the need to go to court. With the help of professionals in various disciplines, the parties will work together to create shared solutions for all aspects of the case – financial, emotional and legal.
Going through a divorce does not mean you have to be involved in an acrimonious process and endure the turmoil that is so often associated with going to court. You now have another alternative. You can choose to participate in a process known as collaborative practice that offers couples a respectful, considerate, solutions-based approach to changing their marital status while preserving the integrity of valued family relationships.
On November 4-5, 2011 at the Crowne Plaza in North Charleston, SC, SCACPA is co-sponsoring a collaborative practice training opportunity with the SC Bar. The Interdisciplinary Family Collaborative Practice program is an intensive two-day training focusing on developing a team of interdisciplinary professionals to work with family conflict and provide support to clients in reaching a fair and equitable settlement. Trainers utilize a mix of lectures, PowerPoint, interactive exercises, demonstrations and role-play to improve participants’ knowledge and skills in collaborative practice..
This training offers a great opportunity for financial professionals with an interest in this area to network with other professionals and grow their practice, with an added bonus of a unique interactive way of learning which is much different than the traditional classroom lecture setting. Seating is limited, register now.
