I am a mediator and a coach, but I used to practice as a lawyer. Can I order the workbooks that include the law version?
We ask that only licensed lawyers purchase the workbooks that contain the customized legal explanations.
The neutral version has all the same helpful exercises and preparatory questions – and a more general overview of legal principles that apply to separation and divorce.
We invite clients to look for assistance from a collaborative lawyer to understand the specific application of the law to their situation. This way you can satisfy your duty to not give legal advice, while still giving the clients all kinds of help to prepare for their process with you.
How do you “get” the clients to do the work with the workbooks?
“Clients' positive feedback speaks volumes about the effectiveness of our Our Family in Two Homes workbooks. Rather than trying to "get" them to do anything, I invite each client to explore the first 13 engaging pages at their own pace. And I assure them that the workbook is private, and they don't need to 'turn it in'.
My tip: During your meetings, ask them about their discoveries from the exercises, fostering a natural and enjoyable conversation. Clients appreciate this approach and embrace the opportunity to learn about themselves on their own terms.”
Jacinta Gallant, Founder OFITH
What kind of Training do I need to be considered a “family dispute resolution professional” under your terms of agreement?
We want to ensure that the divorce professionals using our resources are committed to helping clients resolve family conflict through processes like collaborative practice, mediation, parenting coordination and family therapy.
We ask that you have completed at least 3 days of basic training in mediation or interdisciplinary collaborative practice.
If you haven’t completed that yet, get in touch so we can help you find the resources you need to truly transform your practice.
We want to help you join the community of divorce professionals using more peaceful ways to help families.
What are some ways to recover my costs?
To recover costs, several members include the workbook expenses in a comprehensive intake or resource package fee, ensuring clients receive valuable services while covering workbook costs.
For revenue generation, some members confidently increase their fees beyond the workbook expenses, offering clients enhanced value through the efficient use of workbooks.
Some members create entire new offerings around the workbooks and their practice - from virtual sessions to email support.
Others prioritize job satisfaction and implement the workbooks without making additional income, considering the cost as part of their office budgeting process. Embracing these strategies empowers professionals to elevate their practice and foster greater success.
What if I have a case with a professional who is not using these resources?
If the other professional is willing to give the workbook a try, you can give their client one of your workbooks and decide how you want to recover your cost.
We ask you to inform the other professional about our resources via our website and invite them to join our community.
And you can refill your supply of workbooks with the Refill Pack or in the online Two Homes Professional Community Network.
Remember: the workbooks help the clients be better prepared for their work with you, so even if the professionals are not equally experienced, the clients will still benefit!

How do I know how many workbooks I should get?
Our happiest members use a workbook with almost every client. Think about how many new clients you see in a six month period and start there. How many of these clients need support to work out agreement (these are the ones the workbooks are made for). Then think about clients whose needs are more transactional (ie.documents drafted). These clients may not need a workbook, even though they might benefit from it. If you are still doing litigation, remember that your client might need the workbook more than ever. We're learning that the workbooks are a huge benefit in litigation cases.The price per workbook goes down as you order more. So you can always factor that into your thinking.
Is Designing Our Future Together customized for different legal jurisdictions?
Designing Our Future Together can be used with all English-speaking clients as it provides only general information about relationship agreements and specifically directs clients to seek legal advice in their part of the world.
Can this workbook be used by all Divorce Professionals?
As with all of our resources, we ask our members to be collaboratively trained divorce professionals registered and insured to practice in their jurisdiction.
We have coaches, therapists, lawyers, financial planners, and collaborative teams using this workbook with clients around the world.
