Last month Consensus Collaboration Scotland organised a series of events hosted at The Law Society of Scotland’s premises in Edinburgh. Taking place over two days the primary focus was one of training where attendees able to gather insights, learn new skills and network with Collaborative practitioners from around the world.
Internationally recognised and well respected collaborative lawyer, Jacinta Gallant delivered her insightful and experimental approach to teaching and managing conflict to delegates.
Day one saw the seminar, ‘Deepening Without Drowning: Accessing Hope, Managing Threats & Breathing Fresh Air’ where delegates were able to learn how to ask about parties’ hopes and dive deeply into their perceived threats to bring a breath of fresh air to collaborative work – to combat those feelings of being stumped, and discouraged, by the continuing and sometimes escalating couple conflict.
Participants were able to learn:
Day two saw participants learning how to incorporate the innovative Our Family in Two Homes Resource Package into their practice. They learnt skills and approaches to help offer the resource package using the Workbook to clients. As well as the business side of things so that they can be innovative collaborative professionals offering highly valued service to clients, while building in cost-efficiencies.
Whilst the format of some of the activities had to adjusted to account for the UK Government’s guidelines on COVID-19, this two day event was well attended and a huge success. Culminating in the General Assembly for the European Network for Collaborative Practice (ENCP) it saw representation from the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals (IACP) and delegates from USA, Canada, The Netherlands, Austria, Switzerland, German, Hong Kong and of course Scotland.
