Mediators work with people in conflict to help them resolve their differences and come to agreements about the future.  While mediators’ skills are unique, many of them can transfer to therapy clients, especially couples.  This presentation will review the emotional divorce process, share mediation skills with social workers, and inform participants about the divorce process in Minnesota.  Audience participation and questions are welcome!

You will receive the access link the day before the webinar.
