"Roger Williams University  -
   40 Hr Divorce Mediation Training"  

Divorce Mediation skills training and development in a supervised setting.

 Bruce I. Kogan, Esq. 
Law Professor
Roger Williams Univ. School of Law
Prof. Kogan has trained thousands of law students and mediators over the last 40 years.

This forty (40) hour skills development training course is intended to provide law students, lawyers, counselors and others with an understanding of the contexts in which family conflict arises, the various legal and practical issues in play when families disintegrate, and with in-depth training in the skills that a mediator might employ to help the divorcing parties resolve their differences. The training course exposes the participant to relevant factors and normative approaches used by courts in dividing property, determining child support, custody, visitation, and spousal support among other issues, while recognizing that parties in mediation are empowered to reach their own agreements with the aid of the mediator. Role playing exercises are used to integrate theory with practice. .
