Domestic Violence Screening Protocol Training

Overview

The Michigan State Court Administrative Office (SCAO) requires that Domestic Relations Mediators wishing to be listed on court rosters take an approved Domestic Violence Screening for Mediators Training (see Court Rule 3.216 on the Michigan Court of Appeals web site). This training includes an overview of domestic violence issues in mediation, an overview of the Michigan Domestic Violence Screening Protocol (which can be found on the SCAO's Office of Dispute Resolution web site), and training in the use of the Screening Protocol. Video and role play are included.

Michigan is the first state to approve a Domestic Violence Screening Protocol for private mediators. The screening protocol "is designed to identify parties involved in divorce or child custody actions for which mediation may be inappropriate because of domestic violence or child abuse, and to maximize safety and fairness in the mediation process."
