About the Course

Following Woody’s excellent online APFM programs about mediator settlement proposals and private preliminary planning sessions, APFM is pleased to offer mediators the chance to participate in another online class with renowned mediator Woody Mosten, about Mediating Relocation (Move-Away) Cases. On April 12, from 11:00 a.m. to 12:15 PST (2:00 p.m.– 315 p.m. EST), Woody, joined by therapist Lynn Waldman, will teach participants about cutting edge strategies to handle custody matters in geographical relocation cases, within a single state, to other states, and to other countries. The presenters will describe innovative methods for handling these very difficult cases, including the challenge of developing child-centered parenting plans when parents live far from each other.
