CredibleClient™ is a critical training structure and framework in dispute resolution, included in the Divorce Coaching Competency® training in the Certified Divorce Coach® training and certification program.
CIC® divorce coaching involves educational models in divorce coaching and dispute resolution coaching. Sometimes in divorce and other disputes, an attempt to have a conversation between two people results in an angry exercise in frustrating conversation with bad results often referred to as high-conflict communication in divorce and dispute resolution. These education and training programs teach more effective divorce coaching and dispute resolution coaching communication skills without the emotional triggers.
Six Aspects of Awareness® is the unique and impactful process for helping clients develop the ability to see new options and make new choices to get new results.
The DivorceRelief® divorce education programs involve somatic and other stress relief techniques and other divorce education and training. People in divorce experience high-stress levels and feeling overwhelmed by the enormity of everything. These education and training programs teach divorce coaching skills to reduce stress and be more effective at decision-making and creative solutions.
H.I.G.H. R.O.A.D.®, a framework is the training for moving the client away from high-conflict divorce toward a more amicable divorce.
F-O-C-U-S Forward Organize Communicate Understand Shift™, a framework that highlights for the client the necessary actions to create a sense of empowerment in the divorce process.
C.O.R.E.®, a process that is the sequence of working with the client from the beginning to the conclusion of the engagement using the Divorce Coaching Competency® training.
Professional Boundaries define for certified divorce coaches the line between divorce coaching and the practice of law, therapy, mediation, and financial analysis.
We also include in the Divorce Coaching Competency® training many time-tested models from other disciplines, including neuroscience, conflict resolution, communication, decision-making, and change relating to the journey of divorce before, during, and after the actual legal process.
Divorce coaches need to be highly competent. The Divorce Coaching Competency® training is part of the commitment to develop competent and credible divorce coaching credentials.
Divorce coaches need to be trained in the Divorce Coaching Competency® training, which supports The Professional Standard for Personal Divorce Coaching®.
All of these and more are represented in our Certified Divorce Coach® training and presented in twice-weekly live interactive sessions PLUS a 6-week Mentor Program, Peer Coaching, an online learning system with 24 modules, content, and assignments, including all of the frameworks and materials you will later use with your clients.
