by | Jul 6, 2018 | Collaborative Law, News

Attorney Karen J. Levitt was selected to be a presenter at two different workshops at the October 25-28, 2018 Annual Forum of the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals (IACP).

The theme of this year’s conference is “Collaborative Creativity” in divorce and family law.  The conference is being held in Seattle, Washington. Attendance is by attorneys, financial, mental health and other collaborative professionals from countries around the world who practice in divorce and family law.

The conference is not only educational, but a great opportunity to share with and learn from other professionals who are all involved in various forms of dispute resolution.  Attorney Karen J. Levitt, along with her colleague psychologist Dr. Gina Arons, will be co-leading a workshop that addresses how professionals can have a positive impact in the Collaborative process despite the difficulties clients are experiencing in their divorce or other family law conflict. The skills being taught at the workshop can also be used in other forms of dispute resolution including mediation and litigation.

Attorney Karen J. Levitt will also be one of the presenters from the IACP Access to Collaboration Committee, along with psychologist Dr. Randy Heller from Davie, Florida, Attorney Brian Galbraith from Barrie, Ontario, Canada, Attorney Deirdre Severide from Delta, British Columbia, Canada, and psychologist Dr. Deborah Gilman from Pittsburgh, PA,  in a workshop entitled “Tips and Tricks in launching a  low bono, pro bono or modest means Collaborative program”.

Karen and her colleagues will be sharing what they have learned in starting and maintaining an access to collaboration program, so that others can learn from both their challenges and successes. Karen is honored to be a workshop presenter, and is looking forward to the conference!  For more information, go to
