You Had Me At Hello: Increasing Your Collaborative Practice Through Effective Intake and Initial Consultation

Do you want to increase your Collaborative Practice? Start with your intake process and your initial consultation. Learning objectives of this session are:

  1. To learn how to conduct an initial consultation which engages appropriate clients to choose the Collaborative Divorce.
  2. To successfully elicit clients' interests and values in the consultation, and to demonstrate to clients how their interests can be met with Collaborative Divorce.
  3. To educate clients effectively on how the Process works while creating an action plan so clients exit the consult knowing their role and their next steps to engage their spouse in the Process.

In this interactive session you, after reflecting on your own practice and learning new tools for implementation in your own practice, you will leave with an easy-to-implement action plan to increase your Collaborative Practice!
