Essential skills for the modern family practitioner

Resolution is proud to announce four new modules that will equip family practitioners with the fundamental key skills required for everyday modern practice.

With seven modules now available, growing to 12 by the end of 2024, this suite of modules will enable all family professionals to:

  • confidently guide clients and their families through separation and divorce
  • problem-solve and advise clients on the best solutions for the circumstances they face

What makes it different?

Courses have been designed for all professionals working in family practice. It recognises the importance of an interdisciplinary approach bringing lawyers, coaches, financial professionals, mediators and therapists together in a supportive and interactive training environment.

This modular approach forms a key part of Resolution’s strategy to build a network of family justice professionals, from all backgrounds and roles, who can deliver high-quality services in a changing environment, responding to the changing needs of clients and an evolving family justice system.
