About the Training


This program is designed for individuals with some mediation experience.   

As families face issues related to aging, they often grapple with important decisions about a range of topics such as living arrangements, care giving, driving, family communication, medical care, Powers of Attorney / Health Care Proxies / Guardianship / Conservatorship, financial planning, estate planning, family real estate, and personal property distribution. Conversations around these issues can be emotionally charged and complex.


This program teaches mediators skills and techniques for:

- working with families in conflict around these and other issues, 

- convening multi-party family mediations, and 

- facilitating consensus.  


The skills, techniques, and principles discussed in the training are transferable to mediation in other contexts, and past participants have often remarked about the mediation "Gems" they have received and "AHA Moments" they have experienced that have helped deepen their mediation work.   


Join lead trainers Arline Kardasis and Crystal Thorpe, of Elder Decisions® along with guest presenters, for sessions packed with content, skill-building, role plays, and opportunities to interact with fellow participants.
