I am incredibly glad I took this course. After 40 hours, I feel confident enough to host mediations, but I am even more excited to continue learning. I learned more about language and how it can positively shape behavior than I ever imagined. Mediation is truly an art form and this program encourages students to embrace their personal styles, but to always look to collaborate with others. This course left me feeling inspired and as though I am already a member of the family law mediation family. I cannot recommend this program enough to those interested in establishing a mediation practice.
Kudos to Terri, Susan, and Woody for creating such an impactful course! Since it is primarily activity and role-play based, one really gets a good sense for what it is like to mediate. The course is intense, but the instructors are supportive and approachable at the same time, which made it enjoyable and well worth my investment.
Last week I completed the Mosten/Guthrie 40-Hour Family & Divorce Mediation Training! It was a sensational experience and I left with some incredible lessons to apply to my practice.
For 10 days, I spent time with some true leaders in the industry including Forrest (Woody) Mosten and Susan Guthrie.
I recommend this training to experienced and inexperienced mediator !
I just finished Woody and Susan's 40-hour basic divorce mediation training and it was inspiring, practical and invaluable for anyone looking to improve their skill set. After more than two decades of litigating in Family Courts, I was burned out, and ready for a career pivot but unsure of how to effectuate one. Woody became my mentor and guiding star. Susan has become my inspiration and I am hooked on her podcasts and social media posts.
Their training was outstanding in that I felt they were teaching directly to me. The role playing exercises enabled me to envision myself as a mediator. The supportive environment, steadfast encouragement, and extensive, practical knowledge, gave me the ability to start my new career with confidence and new connections. I am now the assistant director of the Center for Mediation and Training – working with people Woody introduced me to. Being a Mosten and Guthrie trained mediator opened doors for me in ways I never could have imagined. I recommend this course to anyone who is looking to acquire a solid base in the field of mediation, whether to jumpstart a new career (as I did) or to expand their existing legal practice.
Woody Mosten’s 40-hour mediation training is career-changing. As a family law attorney and mediator in my first few years of practice, I know how important it is to learn as much as possible and take trainings to continue to enhance my skills. Through this 10 day course, we all have the opportunity to be trained by the best! Anyone who knows Woody Mosten knows that he is a legend in the family law mediation community—a true innovator and pioneer in consensual dispute resolution with a passion for teaching it.
Woody’s co-trainer, Susan Guthrie is a leader in online mediation, which is so relevant right now during the COVID era and will continue to be increasingly relevant as we move into the future. You will be hard-pressed to find anyone with more specialized knowledge about marketing a mediation practice. Susan is a pro and shares so many nuggets of wisdom along the way.
This course has an excellent balance of theory and practice. We learned mediation theory, relevant law, practical mediation techniques, and practiced our skills every day through challenging and fun role plays.
If you want to be a divorce and family mediator, you will be grateful you took this course!
