Family dispute resolution education
Family mediation is an educational focus again this year.
AMINZ, along with the Resolution Institute and the New Zealand Law Society CLE, has secured funding from the Ministry of Justice to support the coming training events.
The additional funding enables us to offer discounted rates and travel subsidies to providers wishing to participate.
The training starts with an FDR update delivered by webinar on 11am on 11 May.
This session, with Rachel Dewar and Amy Oberkircher will cover the 12-hour model, making the most of separate meetings and agreements — and it allows the opportunity for discussion.
Then international mediation expert David Hoffman will be in New Zealand for seminars in Christchurch, Wellington and Auckland.
The events will consider the latest insights into the voice of the child in family mediation and inter-cultural issues. Both seminars will also include local input.
Half-day forums in Auckland, Hamilton, Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin will also look at the voice of the child and inter cultural issues in family mediation. These will be held in the week of 28 August.
A webinar on Maori Mediation will be held on 28 September.
Rounding out the educational offerings early in 2018 will be an intensive 3 days exclusively on working with children.
