— Mediation Practice Tools & Technology

Turbocharging Your Family Mediation Practice (Mediator Resource Materials)

Welcome colleagues from
ACR's Family Section Mid-Year Conference 2006 (Making Waves, Breaking Barriers)!

The following are course materials and resources referenced in our mediation and technology workshop:

Turbocharging Your Family Mediation Practice:  Tools, Forms and Technology to Improve your Efficiency, Client Satisfaction and Bottom Line!

Click on these to review or print, using Adobe® Acrobat®'s free software. Some of these files are quite large (and will take some time to download). If you have only dial-up — and not high speed internet access — or if you intend to download several of these, we highly recommend you follow the instructions below. (We suggest that you "right-click" and save files to your computer, before opening!)

On request, we can supplement these given questions and issues raised in our workshop.
