Bluewater Mediation, in collaboration with Jennifer Suzor from Windsor Ontario, has just finished a year of training talented new mediators in Windsor, Ontario, in May, 2016. Over twenty professionals, from all walks of life – lawyers, special workers, psychologists, paralegals, and others – took high quality, professional courses designed specifically to meet the accreditation criteria of the Ontario Association for Family Mediation. Those professionals are now working on mediation internships to enable them to become full fledges accredited mediators.
Now a new season of mediation training is beginning! Please join us as we take our courses to Guelph, Ontario, to train new family mediators through 2016-2017. All five courses will be offered to meet the accreditation requirements of the OAFM:
