MediateBC recently announced that it will soon be launching a Regional Mentoring Program to replace the Family Mediation Practicum Program.
According to Rob Finlay, Family Mediation Services, MediateBC:
“The Regional Mentoring Program will provide family mediators with an opportunity to gain practical experience with highly qualified mentors in designated regions in BC. Family mediator trainees will be matched with a mentor in their region and have the opportunity to develop a personalized training plan with a mentor, co-mediate a wide variety of family disputes including parenting responsibilities and property and asset division, and receive guidance and feedback from a mentor through each stage of the mediation process. The Regional Mentoring Program will provide families in these regions with access to affordable mediation services for a wide variety of family disputes including parenting responsibilities and property and asset division.”
The pilot will begin in September and include the Lower Mainland and South Vancouver Island. Three mentors will be available to begin: Vivian Kerenyi (Vancouver), Michael Lomax (Victoria) and Kathleen Purvis-Bellamano (Victoria).
