Elder mediation helps seniors and their adult children resolve conflicts around issues such as living arrangements, caregiving, financial planning, inheritance/estate disputes, medical decisions, family communication, driving, and guardianship.

What previous participants are saying:

"This exceeded my expectations!  The Elder Decisions Mediation Training makes a compelling case for why we need to step up to this national challenge and makes it possible for mediators to step into these critical but delicate family conversations.  I got a great return on my investment: information-dense, practical, inspiring -- allowing me to extend my company's services to meet this growing demand."
     Marina A. Piscolish, Ph.D. MAPping Change, LLC

"Usually when one goes to a conference or training it is considered successful if one takes away one memorable piece of information from the whole event. In my case my expectations were higher given that I had a return trip of some 40 hours travelling time. I found all the presenters so knowledgeable and so passionate about their topics that I would have considered the training a huge success had I only been able to listen to any single one of them! This training was an unmitigated success for the organisers and I could not praise their work enough, from choosing their topics to their choice of presenters, this was indeed a formidable and professional effort that they can rightly be very proud of. I will certainly be looking to attend another of their events."

"Elder Decisions' Advanced Elder Mediation Training...was excellent; actually the best I have ever experienced.  It was well organized (and) the subject matter was completely covered.  (This was) the most sequentially programmed and clearly presented (training) I have yet attended."
     Jane Thayer, Ph.D., Mediator, Martha's Vineyard, MA
     Co-author, Elderescence: The Gift of Longevity

"Thank you all for the excellent program last week - the presentations were excellent, the materials just the type of thing that I will use in the future as a reference tool. Obviously you have devoted much time, thought, and effort to creating this workshop - your work has paid off for the participants!"
