ETSU Professional Development to offer family mediation training in Sevierville

Rule 31 family mediation training approved by the Tennessee Supreme Court Alternative Dispute Resolution Commission (ADRC) will be offered this summer by East Tennessee State University’s Office of Professional Development. 

The sessions will meet from 8 a.m.-6 p.m. daily at ETSU at the Sevier Center, 1122 Blanton Drive, Sevierville, on two Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, Aug. 8-10 and Aug. 22-24.

Jean Munroe will conduct the 46-hour course that will focus on parenting plans, support and the equitable distribution of assets and liabilities, as well as emotional issues and the effects of divorce on children. Other content includes crossover training for those who have taken Rule 31 training in civil mediation.

Munroe has been a mediator since 1991. She was approved in 1998 by the Tennessee Supreme Court ADRC to train Rule 31 mediators, and she has conducted over 100 mediation training sessions.
This training is of benefit to attorneys, teachers, social workers, psychologists, executives, ministers, law enforcement officers or anyone else dealing with conflict resolution.

The fee for the full session is $1,445, with a $100 discount for those who register by July 8. Participants who are already listed as Rule 31 civil mediators may take 30 hours of crossover training for $900, with a $50 discount if registered by July 8.
