Resolution Institute NZ offers Virtual Practice Groups - an informal opportunity to take part in a one hour discussion on an important area of practice. It's a 'virtual lunch date' to share thoughts, questions and insights.
Each session is on a different topic, as notified in the marketing prior. Each Virtual Practice Group has a facilitator (experienced DR practitioner) who will host and support the discussion. Virtual Practice Groups run on the third Thursday of the month, from February to November.
Each session will contribute 1 hour of CPD under the Resolution Institute mediation accreditation scheme.
