Agreement Writing

Agreement Writing

This training will take the principles learned in Basic Mediation Training and apply them to writing a solid, useful work product. The Written Agreement should never be a straitjacket confining the parties, but instead a tool that helps them to effect positive change. Properly constructed with respect for the self-determination of the parties, it can do exactly that.

While this training will be offered again before the next Basic Mediation Training, it is strongly encouraged that any Apprentices attend.

There is no charge for this training for Empowered Pathways Community Partners.
