Webinar recording | Interdisciplinary Collaborative Practice – a TEAM approach to respectfully resolving family law disputes without court

with Shelby Timmins

Pre-recorded | Online

This webinar is relevant to mediators, lawyers and family dispute resolution practitioners.

Interdisciplinary Collaborative Practice is a bespoke process that provides parties with an opportunity to work through their dispute co-operatively, with respect and dignity and without going to court. It involves confidential and transparent negotiations that take an interest-based ‘team approach’. It’s a leap away from the win / lose adversarial mentality, to a process where parties and practitioners are committed to a win/win, future-focused outcome for those involved, without court.

Shelby Timmins, who is passionate about Interdisciplinary Collaborative Practice, explains: the key features and how they work; the beauty of taking a ‘team’ approach; the benefits of a collaborative process; how/when it can be used and by whom.

Although Shelby works in the family dispute resolution space, she challenges you to think ‘outside the box’. Interdisciplinary Collaborative Practice is not confined to family law. This dispute resolution method is applicable where there is a dispute that requires resolution and parties and professionals who are committed to finding a solution that works for all.

This webinar is relevant to mediators, lawyers and family dispute resolution practitioners.
