  • Marriage Matters – 2 days
    Event Description
    Marital conflicts and disputes are among the most complex and challenging. Marriage Matters prepares you to use the skills you learned in basic mediation training to help spouses navigate these troubled waters. On Day 1, we explore the relational components of marital conflict and how to promote reconciliation and healing when hope seems lost. On Day 2, we prepare you to help spouses tackle the thorny issues that must be resolved if they separate (e.g. child care and contact, child and spousal support, property rights and debt responsibility) and write up the understandings they reach and the commitments they make in a way that minimizes further problems and promotes future stability and security.
