International Cross-Border Family Mediation Training

May 6, 2019

Melissa Kucinski

This program is open to family mediators who want to advance their mediation skills to work more productively with families where cross-border parenting issues arise. This training will help family mediators issue-spot potential issues that require additional discussion and consideration between the parents, and help the mediator have a more sophisticated understanding of how to approach these complex multi-jurisdictional situations. The training will cover the legal and practical aspects of international custody, child relocation, and child abduction that may arise when a family’s background includes more than one jurisdiction.

This 2-day training will be held in two parts.

  • Part 1 will take place on May 6, which consist of a online training that will provide a solid foundation for a mediator’s multi-jurisdictional family practice and cover fundamental issues, such as different models and styles of cross-border family mediation used globally, legal frameworks, and building a network to help mediators with these complex cases.
  • Part 2 will be held in-person at the UC Hastings Law School campus in San Francisco on May 20, 2019, and will cover discussions on advanced mediation skills, addressing power imbalances, implicit biases, mediator self-awareness, cross-cultural issues, the role of children in international mediations, and using technology to facilitate a multi-jurisdictional mediation session. Part 2 will include hands-on exercises.
