Child protection mediations are among the most difficult mediations done by mediators.  There are many  reasons for this. The subject matter is always difficult and emotionally charged for all parties because you are dealing with children and their caretakers, many of whom have suffered or are suffering from addiction, disabilities or mental health challenges.  The breadth of knowledge required encompasses provincial and federal laws, region specific practices, advanced mediation skills, and an understanding of diverse groups and the acute, chronic and complex traumas that have influenced and affected that group or individual intergenerationally.  The effect of trauma and stress on the brain architecture and development of children is a complex but important area that will also be touched upon.

This 4-part course will provide an overview of what you need to know to effectively mediate child protection cases. It will also provide some specific trauma informed tools that can assist you in preparing for mediation with high conflict, traumatized parties.
