This one day course is aimed at helping family lawyers appreciate the importance of the stories our clients tell us. Though we may think we have heard them all before in fact each story we hear is unique and will contain valuable insights into the person sitting in front of us. Our assumptions and prejudices will be challenged and as a result we will be better lawyers for our clients. The course will be highly interactive involving storytelling, input and small group discussions.
