❏ Real Peacemaking
❏ Fewer Meltdowns & Less Stress
❏ More Satisfied Clients

Oregon Association of Collaborative Professionals (OACP), Oregon's state-wide IACP-affiliated organization, is pleased to sponsor a two-day workshop on May 1-2, 2015, in Portland, with the renowned Forrest "Woody" Mosten. Woody will present on the topic of "Building a Satisfying & Profitable Collaborative and/or Mediation Practice (Getting More Clients)," with associate trainer, Kevin Scudder. Guest speakers include Bill Howe and Forrest Collins.

Take your ADR skills to the next level! This is a workshop for all divorce professionals (legal, mental health, and financial) who seek to provide their clients with a less stressful, court-less opportunity to join the growing community of well-adjusted divorced families. Basic collaborative training is recommended, but not required.

The intention in offering this workshop is to provide ideas and resources and to demonstrate proven models and methods of practice from which you can gain personal satisfaction and increased income from your peacemaking work.

The workshop is taught from differing backgrounds, length of professional experience, and life perspectives. Woody uses his 40+ years as an innovative law and mediation practitioner and trainer to go beyond the successful Master Class he taught with Pauline Tesler in 2011-2012. Kevin is a member of the cutting-edge Cypress Collaborative Solutions Practice Group and a frequent contributor on Collaborative social media sites and a blogger at Be-Fulfilled.org. He will share lessons learned from his own challenges and joys of giving up litigation and moving to a full time peacemaking practice.

The workshop is fast paced and interactive and has been customized as a two day event. You can participate in a world-class event at the lowest price possible and with a minimum of working time out of your office.



Twelve (12) continuing education credit hours are anticipated for lawyers, financial, and mental health professionals.



Registration cost is $475. Partial scholarships and reduced rates for Judges and law students are available.

The workshop times are 9:00 a.m. until 12:30 p.m and 2:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m. on May 1 and 2, 2015. Registration is open to professionals practicing in the areas of family law (including mediation), mental health and finance. Oregon Association of Collaborative Professionals (OACP) will waive its 2015 annual membership dues (a $100 value) for registrants who are current members or who are approved for new membership.
