This fully interactive, hands-on workshop will give attorneys and mental health professionals the tools needed to be an effective, ethical, certified* mediator in court-connected family cases in South Carolina. If you practice in family court or would like to work with families in transition, this training program is for you. Under the S.C. Supreme Court’s Probate Court Mediation program, practitioners may qualify for appointment in probate mediation cases by being certified as a family court mediator. 

Trainers Mary Bryan and Jim Sarratt have more than 50 years combined experience as practicing attorneys and mediation trainers and have mediated cases for nearly 20 years. They are dynamic, knowledgeable, experienced trainers committed to the value of mediation. They have prepared many South Carolina attorneys and other professionals to mediate and use mediation skills in law practice, business and family life. 

Anyone may take these classes to become a well-trained mediator. However, training does not guarantee certification by the S.C. Board of Arbitrator & Mediator Certification; you must also be eligible for certification, of which training is only one requirement. For all Board certification requirements, please read closely court-annexed ADR Rule 19, available at adr, along with applications, roster, FAQs and much more.
