provide this cutting-edge expertise to family law
professionals in a novel format. Intensive Peer
Mentoring provides in-depth, small group
child-centered consultation custom-tailored to
each participant's skills, areas of interest, and
Large group trainings can be
terrific, but the genuinely astute participant who
seeks more than just continuing education credits
can only ask so many questions or take the speaker
aside for so long. In this setting, it can be
impossible to genuinely challenge a concept,
inquire about an application, or explore all of
the "what if....?" and "I have a case that ..."
and "Where can I learn more....?" questions and
comments that can arise.
Intensive Peer Mentoring welcomes
these challenges and inquiries and innovations.
This is the environment in which in-depth thought,
case application, and out-of-the-box "what-ifs"
are welcome and valued. This is the setting in
which skilled professionals hone and update their
thinking and their real-world tools.
Intensive Peer Mentoring is
a small group (usually three professionals) three
day, empirically grounded, child-centered,
case-oriented consultative service. This
intensive, advanced training includes:
Peer Mentoring three-day session is
designed uniquely to suit the expressed interests,
skills and needs of the participants. Dr. Garber
will assemble an exhaustive bibliography of
relevant scientific literature, a log of relevant
case law, and will provide participants with
sample (sanitized) reports and evaluation tools.
These materials are collected in the form of a
binder and delivered to participants (either via
post or email in pdf format) in advance of meeting
so as to build a common foundation in theory,
practice and approach.
Peer Mentoring process is not
complete when the three day face-to-face portion
is done. The program includes monthly ad hoc
distance check-ins intended to assure that the
matters first discussed in person are thereafter
solidly cemented in place.
