Mediators and Arbitrators of America has developed a one-day class to proactively address your clients and family law participants who have been accused of abusive behavior and/or domestic violence.  Successful graduates receive a certificate that confirms that they have attended a class, taught by professionals who are leaders in their fields, which reviews sensitive approaches to curb even the “perception” of abusive behavior.
It seems that in every family law matter the running joke among attorneys is that “men are always accused of being abusive and women are all labeled as crazy.”  Cut off those accusations by having your clients attend this class; it’s a relatively small investment in a very expensive prolonged divorce process.
This type of proactive approach shows that even going through a tough divorce, your clients can show a judge they have taken the lead in earnestly addressing any issues that may be perceived to be a problem by their soon to be divorced spouses.  Unless further involvement is necessary, this class should satisfy a judge that your clients are doing everything possible to be “good actors,” and alleviate the need for prolonged “behavior” classes unless necessary.
All families have tensions. Often, the method of responding to such tensions is both inappropriate and hurtful. The causes of such aggressive and damaging responses are varied – structural factors such as lengthy and close quartered environments; family hierarchy; family/cultural norms; and societies acceptance that behavior within a family unit is a private matter; among others.
This class will discuss and focus on such issues as offender behavior; gaslighting; domestic violence; impact on children; the domestic violence cycle; differences between domestic violence, intimate partner violence and domestic abuse; myths associated with abusive behavior; and the importance of offenders receiving ongoing support, if necessary.
