With this 40 hour training (added to your Master’s Degree in mental health or Juris Doctorate) you could become a court-approved mediator, earning $200+/hour to assist divorcing families resolve custody issues. Since the Illinois Supreme Court has mandated mediation for divorcing couples who cannot agree on a custody plan, the demand for mediators has skyrocketed.
This course is designed to provide participants with a clear understanding of the role of mediator as it differs from that of legal advocate, judge and counselor. The five day training will include videotaped demonstrations, lectures and discussions as well as role-play and coaching. We will discuss alternative dispute resolution strategies, domestic violence issues, financial and custody matters, and family dynamics. Participants will receive a detailed course manual.
This training is approved for 40 hours of CLE/CEU credits.
Completion of the 40-Hour (5-day) course meets the requirements of Illinois Supreme Court Rule 99 and Missouri Supreme Court Rule 88 to be a court-approved mediator(local requirements may vary).
