Online Workshop | Family Law Mediation - Virtual mediations and its challenges

with Lisanne Iriks

Tuesday 2 June 2020 | 11am - 12.30pm (AEST) | 1pm - 2.30pm (NZ time) | Online

About the Online Workshop

Family Mediation is challenging to facilitate online at the best of times and now we have the added difficulty of having everyone constantly at home.

Lisanne has been offering online mediation for years and she will share her experience and will talk about how to facilitate online mediation with children at home and in some instances with clients still living together. Lisanne will share the do’s and the don’t of offering family mediation online and will discuss the benefits and the challenges. There will be time to reflect and answer questions.

Online Workshops: One and a half hour online workshops upskilling current practitioners via Zoom meetings. A maximum of 14 attendees are able to participate in a given workshop. The trainer and the participants will be able to see each other and interact online. This new format will be delivered as ’ bite sized chunks of learning’ with an opportunity for Q&A at the end of each.
