The CDC® Program is celebrating its third anniversary and in the spirit of continual improvement in the standards for a divorce coaching practice, graduates are required to satisfy 16 hours of continuing education requirements for recertification.
Recognizing the rich professional experience and diverse backgrounds of our graduates and the opportunity to reach out to others who offer closely related studies, we have scheduled our first quarter of Continuing Education in the CDC Coach Forum. The purpose of the continuing education hours is to deepen the impact that CDC Certified Divorce Coaches can have on individuals going through divorce – and by extension, on the children and other members of that family, schools and community.
Upcoming Continuing Education Programs include:
August 15 – “How can I help my client build better relationships – including with their lawyer, with their soon-to-be ex, and with their NEXT partner?”
Principles for effective communication and relationship-building drawing on the work of Jack Pransky and John Gottman.
Presented by Dr. Kalen Hammann (Doctorate in social psychology; over 25 years helping people improve their relationships in business and personal relationships, including 14 years working with individuals, couples, and families as a licensed Psychologist in Massachusetts.) www.DoDivorceRight.com
