Final FGC Workshop for 2020

Message from Joanne,

I hope you are doing OK, looking after yourself, your family and friends with the level of social distancing imposed where you live.    

The National Mediation Conference planning committee has had to abandon their plans for Alice Springs and will now also be running their conference fully online in September.  There is still time to register.  You can find the link to the registration here – National Mediation Conference 2021 

 The next Family Group Conference Facilitator training  workshops are scheduled for October 2021. If you would like to become certified as a Family Group Conference Facilitator the course is available fully online.   Mediation Institute provides training in Family Group Conference Facilitation
