“I thoroughly enjoyed the pre-conference forum. Thanks to your program, my faith in the collaborative process is renewed. Also your program helped me realize that I need to commit to working with my team, being willing to share my frustrations, perspective, etc. because there is a mutual resolution which can be achieved which accommodates my "let's hurry up and get this done" with the clients' pace of the process. I need to give up control and be more willing to let the clients dictate the pace, while at the same time, voicing concern if I perceive that someone is using the process to his or her own ends, rather than mutual benefit.”
— Attorney, Linda S. Gross, IACP Pre-Forum Institute


“These videos are an outstanding learning tool for law schools and practitioners alike. They turn theory into practice, enabling viewers to observe collaborative conflict resolution in action in real world situations. The ability to stop the action and highlight specific dynamics and strategies provides an excellent springboard for discussion and skill-building. Their rich content is inspiring and valuable for a practitioner of any conflict resolution process.”
— Dawn Effron, Esq., Adjunct Professor, New England Law School / Boston


“Since 2009, Rita and Cathy have provided a 3-day basic training for the Collaborative Divorce Holland Association and provided more professional and useful material each training. The material provides an overview of a divorce case, in which the most important meetings are included. Most useful in our eyes was the fact that the team worked on problems that many divorcing couples face. Even though the DVDs are made in the United States, the problems are universal, so we can easily use the DVDs in the Netherlands as well. We also specifically liked the challenging meeting-episode and the innovative problem-solving model-episode. We feel that these scenes provide hands-on tools for our members.”
— Brigitte Chin-A-Fat, Lawyer, the Netherlands


“I cannot adequately express my gratitude for the exceptional training experience you created for us in Chicago. You both were so warm, gracious, diplomatic and professional. It is no wonder why groups around the globe have asked you to train them. I have to second the request for the two of you to relocate to Chicago We will just have to settle for spending time with you "virtually" while we watch your wonderful training videos over and over again! Thank you again for your time, energy and professionalism.”
— Psychologist, Board member, Chicago


“I wanted to thank you both for the very enjoyable training in Chicago. Your synergy and collaborative process as trainers was a pleasure to witness and partake in. You really practiced your teachings 'in vivo' which made the moment that much more meaningful for me. Heart felt thanks for making the process virtually real, dynamic and engaging.”
— Clinical Social Worker, Sasha von Varga. Chicago
