Testimonials

“I thoroughly enjoyed the pre-conference forum. Thanks to your program, my faith in the collaborative process is renewed. Also your program helped me realize that I need to commit to working with my team, being willing to share my frustrations, perspective, etc. because there is a mutual resolution which can be achieved which accommodates my “let’s hurry up and get this done” with the clients’ pace of the process. I need to give up control and be more willing to let the clients dictate the pace, while at the same time, voicing concern if I perceive that someone is using the process to his or her own ends, rather than mutual benefit.”

“You felt exactly what the group needed at specific moments and the practice examples made what you were teaching easy to understand. You clearly demonstrated the role of each professional and how a whole team works best for the clients.”

“Since 2009, Rita and Cathy have provided a 3-day basic training for the Collaborative Divorce Holland Association and provided more professional and useful material each training. The material provides an overview of a divorce case, in which the most important meetings are included. Most useful in our eyes was the fact that the team worked on problems that many divorcing couples face. Even though the DVDs are made in the United States, the problems are universal, so we can easily use the DVDs in the Netherlands as well. We also specifically liked the challenging meeting-episode and the innovative problem-solving model-episode. We feel that these scenes provide hands-on tools for our members.”

“I cannot adequately express my gratitude for the exceptional training experience you created for us in Chicago. You both were so warm, gracious, diplomatic and professional. It is no wonder why groups around the globe have asked you to train them. I have to second the request for the two of you to relocate to Chicago We will just have to settle for spending time with you “virtually” while we watch your wonderful training videos over and over again! Thank you again for your time, energy and professionalism.”
