Family Consultants Training

Friday 30th September and Saturday 1st October 2022 10am -4pm

Our 2 day training will help you understand what working as a Family Consultant involves.
For those coming from a therapeutic or social work background our course is designed to focus on models and skills which support our work with separating and divorcing families and to help you understand the legal proces of divorce.

For those coming from a legal background our course is designed to show you how to work with a Family Consultant, demystifying the role and helping you feel confident at introducing Family Consultant use to your clients.

It is an experiential course, where we will ask you to think about your own experiences. There will be role play and exercises to help you take what you learn and apply it to the real world.
