Are you finding it challenging to manage ongoing parental conflicts post-divorce or separation? Do traditional dispute resolution methods seem inadequate?

The lack of effective resolution tools can leave families in turmoil and mediators feeling ineffective.


Imagine being equipped with advanced tools to resolve high-conflict situations efficiently, improving your mediation practice and supporting families more effectively.


The South African Association of Mediators is excited to announce their upcoming webinar on July 12, 2024, featuring Anne-Marie Cade from Melbourne, Australia. This 3 hour webinar will focus on the best practices in parenting coordination as a dispute resolution tool after divorce or separation.

  • International Best Practices: Insights from various jurisdictions, including the USA, Canada, South Africa, Spain, Italy, and more, showcasing effective strategies and models for parenting coordination.

  • Role of the Parenting Coordinator: The multifaceted role of PCs in assessing disputes, managing conflict, educating parents, and sometimes making decisions to prevent repeated litigation.

  • Impact on Children: How effective parenting coordination can shield children from parental conflict, reducing stress and promoting healthier co-parenting relationships.
