About the Training: 
As families face issues related to aging, they often grapple with important decisions about topics such as living arrangements, care giving, driving, family communication, medical care, Powers of Attorney/ Health Care Proxies/ Guardianship/ Conservatorship, financial planning, estate planning, family real estate, and personal property distribution. Conversations around these issues can be emotionally charged and complex.
This program teaches skills and techniques to help mediators work with families in conflict around these and other issues, convene multi-party family mediations, and facilitate consensus. Join trainers Arline Kardasis and Crystal Thorpe, with guest experts from the fields of elder law and gerontology, for three days packed with content, skill-building, role plays, and opportunities to interact with fellow participants (who often travel from around the world to attend).
