|Mediation Training Institute Schedule||Date|
|40-hour General Civil Mediation|
|46-hour Family Mediation|
Through a grant with the grant contract with the State of Tennessee we are offering a 6-hour course for attorneys, mediators and other professionals who interact with divorcing and never-married parents relative to shared parenting in Tennessee. Learn about the dynamics of “the split” and skillful use of the Tennessee Parenting Plan, including techniques for getting agreement, reality-testing, determining child support and dealing with outside influences.
The Tennessee Supreme Court has approved an innovative Alternative Dispute Resolution Plan prepared by the Alternative Dispute Resolution Commission (ADRC) to assist courts facing a backlog of civil cases caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. For many years, mediation has been used to successfully resolve disputes. The Plan creates a process that will make mediation more available to civil litigants as a means of providing a quicker, less expensive, and potentially more satisfying alternative to continuing litigation in a case without impairing the quality of justice or the right to a trial.
Private Dispute Resolution Services is open and available to serve your mediation needs. Our in-person training program will return in July. Check our continuing education schedule for Virtual Training opportunities.
To keep our staff and clients safe, we continue to practice social distancing and adhere to the recommended guidelines of local, state and national officials.
We look forward to working with you. Continue staying safe and well.
