Individuals who have completed domestic mediation training previously are welcome to register for this one-day training to gain a clearer understanding of legal terminology and procedures that affect domestic situations. Attorneys are also welcome to attend this workshop as a review of Utah domestic law.

    This workshop is court-approved and qualifies for continuing education credit as required by the Utah State Courts to requalify on its Roster of Mediators.

    Domestic Violence Awareness and Screening for Mediators

    This training is designed to raise awareness of the prevalence of domestic violence and to give family mediators information and skills to screen cases prior to mediation. The one-day workshop is offered as part of UDR's Domestic Mediation Training; if you are registering for that workshop, you need not sign up for this one-day training separately.

    Utah Court Rule 4-510 requires court-qualified domestic mediators to have completed at least six hours training on domestic violence screening.

This workshop will satisfy the six-hour requirement for mediators who have not completed domestic violence training.
