Rt Hon Simon Hughes MP, Minister of State for Justice and Civil Liberties, recent announcement puts ‘the voice of the child’ at the heart of family proceedings. As mediators we have always sought and valued their view.

This two day intensive course, delivered by use of presentations, case discussions, role-plays and group exercises, meets the requirements of the Family Mediation Council for those wishing to directly consult with children in mediation.

Open to experienced family mediators and collaborative practitioners with experience in dealing with children who wish to acquire the skills and techniques required to consult directly with children as part of their family mediation practice in appropriate circumstances following FMA policy, and as a child consultant within Collaborative Practice.
