NAFCM Webinars

 

Welcome to the home of NAFCM's Community Mediation Webinar Series! NAFCM's webinars are professionally designed, delivered by leaders in the community mediation field, and provide actionable recommendations and tangible resources to enhance key areas of center administration. In designing this series, NAFCM has innovated its traditional in-person trainings to meet the demands of today's community mediation programs.

This series responds to both the continued financial hardships faced by many programs, as well as their local mandates to do even more good with fewer resources. Stripped of the requirement to incur often substantial travel expenses and related out-of-office hassles, the Community Mediation Webinar Series and NAFCM On Demand will allow program administrators, volunteers, and board members to keep atop latest developments and enrich their skills from the comfort of their own office. Read about each of the upcoming individual courses below, review 
our past trainings in our NAFCM On Demand, and register today!

Or when one party accuses another of having one? How about when you, the practitioner, suspect that a mental health issue is at play? This program teaches conflict resolvers to become sensitive, accessible, and impartial toward parties with mental health needs. Dan also shares tools for your practice.
