Collaborative Practice: Staying Out of the Briar Patch–Identifying and Dealing with Expected and Unexpected Issues in the Collaborative Process
Course No. C1816R
Live Audio Webcast


In this program, Attorney Nancy Harris will be dealing with the issues of difficult clients and obstacles that attorneys may confront during a collaborative divorce process. Lana Stern, Ph.D., will provide and demonstrate insight as to how the neutral mental health professional can be used to assist the parties and attorneys in communicating, keeping the parties engaged in the collaborative process when matters get heated, and understanding the psychological dynamics that may assist or detract from reaching settlement in the case. Finally, Adam T. Magill, MBA, CBA, CVA, MAFF will provide insights as to how to best use a neutral financial professional to deal with contradictory financial claims between the parties and in proposing creative options for people whose goals may be rather unrealistic or far apart. Regardless of your experience or training in collaborative law, this course will provide insights and tools that can be used in both collaborative and non-collaborative divorce cases.
