Ron and Woody are each experienced trainers who offer presentations worldwide on their own. However, they particularly thrive on training together and have offered popular programs at several IACP forums, in San Diego and Minneapolis, and online for introductory and advanced Collaborative trainings as well as for IACP’s 2020 program on building a successful Collaborative practice.
Ron may have participated in more Collaborative cases than anyone in the field. In addition to his successful practice, he is a partner in Collaborative Alliance—a 24,000 square foot home for peacemakers of all professions in Minneapolis.
Woody and Ron do not just talk about interdisciplinary team building—they are a team—albeit very different from each other—and they will be facilitating each month’s session together.
