CPD event | Christchurch Practice Group 2022

Starts 1 March | Christchurch

Facilitated by a team of Resolution Institute member mediators and Resolution Institute accredited Restorative Justice facilitators from Christchurch this practice group will meet 5 times over 2022, March, May, July, September and November, offering a 1.5 hour facilitated discussion to join colleagues and share thoughts, questions and insights of dispute resolution practice.

The facilitator team will be informed by the group as to areas of focus and create a forum for discussion. If an expert voice on a particular topic is requested the facilitator team will access this through the Resolution Institute network. The group is open to all those working in dispute resolution practice e.g. mediators, family dispute resolution practitioners, conciliators, restorative practice practitioners, restorative justice facilitators, adjudicators and arbitrators.
