CIM Update Day

CIM Update Day

More details


Trainer. (consist of) Ruth Smallacombe, Beverley Sayers and Ashley Palmer

This course has now been approved by the Family Mediation Council (FMC).

This Day has been designed for you, if you trained on any previous two day Direct Consultation with Children Course. We wanted to give you this early chance to do the training update and refresh your practice.

Whatever your experience level has been since DCC training and however much you include children and young people within your Mediations, it will bring you up to date with the developments in Research, Policy and Practice in relation to Child Inclusive Mediation. The course will give you greater confidence and fresh ideas in working with parents and directly with children.

You’ll be aware that all current  DCC trained Mediators are now required to attend a CIM Update day in order to continue to see children within their practice.*

The landscape has changed significantly and Mediators who themselves are not DCC/CIM trained, are attending Awareness and Refresher courses to help them understand the model and how to discuss CIM with client/s at Intake stage onwards…..All mediators also need to set up a close link with a CIM Mediator or similar practice in order to refer cases and to co-work.

This is a certificated course which addresses the requirements of the new FMC CIM Standards and more!

Please contact the FMA office if you have any further queries.
