Can Any Professional Call Themselves Collaborative?
The short answer is yes; any professional can call themselves collaborative and use a collaborative approach even if they are not trained or affiliated with Collaborative Divorce Vancouver.
Our member professionals have done the training and have the experience to be the collaborative professional you want.
Professionals who belong to CDV have additional training in mediation, negotiation and Collaborative Law and must continue to upgrade their skills through training in the Collaborative Process to retain their membership in CDV.
CDV professionals also have the experience of working in interdisciplinary teams and know how to best support you and your family as you navigate your separation.
By choosing a professional from the CDV website, you can be sure they are trained in the Collaborative Process and refer you to other similarly trained Collaborative Professionals.
