CP: The Next Level - For York and Durham Only Practice Goups


Have you completed the Introductory Collaborative Practice Training but not opened as many cases as you would like ideally?

Maybe you took the training a long time ago and now want to open more cases.

This is the course for you.

You must be a member of either Durham or York CP Practice groups to attend this workshop.

We focus on how you can lead potential new clients to the Collaborative process every time.

Over the course of five two-hour sessions, you will learn how:

  1. How to explain the benefits of the Collaborative Practice process to potential clients;
  2. The proven steps of an interest-based client consultation so that you can customize how Collaborative Practice will meet your client’s needs;
  3. Techniques to overcome the reluctance of the other spouse;
  4. Ways to overcome the reluctance of the other lawyer;
  5. How to make the paradigm shift yourself so that you are not the problem;
  6. Talking to clients about Collaborative Practice;
  7. How to debunk the myths about Collaborative Practice including:
    1. It costs too much;
    2. It is only meant for simple cases;
    3. It is only meant for complicated cases;
    4. It cannot deal with high conflict cases or people;
    5. The Family/Financial professional is not necessary;
    6. The disqualification clause is unnecessary and not in your client’s interests;
    7. Any other objections you want debunked.

Be prepared to do some homework between sessions. To become an effective Collaborative Practice professional, you need to do the work. Homework will help ensure you have made the paradigm shift.

The cost of this course is  normally $450 Canadian Funds, plus tax and ticketing fees.  York and Durham practice groups are subsidizing the cost so members only pay $300 + HST.
