Faculty: Zena Zumeta
This training focuses on adult guardianship and family caregiver mediation. Learn the differences between other types of mediation and elder mediation. In this training, we will focus on the mediator's responsibility toward inclusion of the older person's voice in the mediation and techniques for working in multiparty family mediations. At the conclusion of the training, you will be prepared to organize and perform elder mediations. This training is meant as an advanced training for those who have already taken basic mediation training, and an introduction to elder mediation for those who have not.
