Cléa Amundsen, Family Law Mediator

Clea Amundsen family law mediator

Cléa Amundsen of Kitsilano Family Law recently obtained accreditation from the Law Society of British Columbia as a Family Law Mediator.

In order to obtain this accreditation, Cléa took 80 hours of approved mediation training. This training included mediation theory, the statutory framework for mediation, training in family dynamics and participation in mediation role-playing scenarios. She also took 14 hours of training in how to evaluate and deal with family violence and how to identify and deal with potential family violence issues and power imbalances in the mediation setting. In addition Cléa had to confirm for the Law Society that she had sufficient knowledge, skills and experience in the field of family law dispute resolution to be able to undertake and conduct family law mediations in a fair and competent manner.

Cléa is very excited about her new accreditation and looks forward to using the mediation process in her family law dispute resolution practice as she believes that mediation is a useful process which can be of great benefit to many families and their children.
