    A peaceful solution is on the horizon

Divorce need not be destructive

Husbands do not want to be pitted against wives, and mothers do not wish to be pitted against fathers. Tampa Bay is home to one of the nation’s largest and fastest growing communities of attorneys, mental health professionals, financial professionals, and mediators who feel that the adversarial court system is an inappropriate forum to resolve most families’ disputes.


Tampa Bay Collaborative Trainers offer a two-day Introductory Interdisciplinary Collaborative Training that meets and exceeds IACP Minimum Standards for Training. We understand that each community is different and has its own terminology, practices, and preferences. Accordingly, we will work directly with the host community to customize a curriculum that meets that community’s needs, while at the same time introducing new ideas and techniques that have proven effective in building our own practices and community.


Tampa Bay Collaborative Trainers understand the risks involved and the limited funds that are oftentimes available for communities seeking to conduct an introductory collaborative training. Accordingly, rather than charge a flat fee, we have created a cost structure that minimizes the risks for the local community and makes collaborative training an option even for smaller locales.


Our introductory training is community-focused, as we understand that no professional can do collaborative work on their own. Each member of the training group has been a key figure in the tremendous growth of collaborative practice in our communities. One of our main goals is to help set the foundation so that our attendees can re-energize and build a thriving collaborative community in their own area.
