Currently limited to 50 attendees. More dates may open in the future.
A parenting coordinator helps resolve conflicts, which are always detrimental to the child or children involved. This is a court-ordered process that is not confidential, and has the best interest of the child at the center of every decision.
This conference will provide participants information, skills and tools to become a Parenting Coordinator. Although not a prerequisite for participation in the conference, mediation training is also required in order to become a Parenting Coordinator.
Six hours of Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credits have been approved by the Oregon State Bar, including three hours of Access to Justice credits and three hours of General credits.
Neither the Board of Licensed Social Workers nor the Board of Licensed Professional Counselors and Therapists will pre-approve continuing education credits. The Oregon State Bar Association is a credentialing body, and is specifically approved by the Board of LIcensed Social Workers. Each participant will have to apply for credits individually and can purchase a certificate of attendance.
