Would you like to support aging families by encouraging and guiding conversations regarding health, family relationships, aging respectfully, and maintaining visibility and independence? Can we assist them in re-imagining and actioning a life that nurtures optimal health?
The importance of aspiring to a national/international Elder Mediation standard promotes competency for Elder Mediators. It affirms to the public that they have deepened their sensitivities and knowledge in this important field. FMC Certified Elder Mediators grow their commitment and skills to work professionally and ethically in this developing field of practice. Holding certification heightens dedication to ongoing learning and training. Due to FMC’s strong partnership with the Elder Mediation International Network (EMIN), recipients are automatically added to the EMIN international roster.
Topics covered will include:
- Special emphasis on safeguarding vulnerable adults, elder abuse, and ageism
- Misconceptions on health and aging
- Review education and experience required for Elder Mediation Certification
- Review & explanation of certification requirement levels
- Consideration of applicant’s prior learning and experience
- Who is best suited to guide the Elder Mediation process?
