The Collaborative Practice Training Institute (CPTI) is a diverse faculty of Collaborative Practitioners from Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, D.C., comprising family law and civil attorneys, mental health professionals, financial specialists and mediators. We associated in 2007 to share ideas, expertise, and enthusiasm for Collaborative Practice and the underlying interest-based approach to dispute resolution. As a faculty we have been trained in adult education and studied a variety of Collaborative training programs to have the breadth and depth of experience to develop new courses that address the changes in Collaborative Practice as it has spread throughout our communities and the world. We challenge our participants to think about the concepts, discuss the relevant topics, and practice interest-based skills so that they can engage Collaborative practice at its core.
