February Membership Program and Dinner

Join DCACP for the presentation, Let’s Talk About Money.   Presenters: Eric Wexler CFP, CDFA, Debra May CPA, CFP, CDFA and Steve Weisbaum JD We have had multiple trainings on streamlining our process, working efficiently and being mindful of the costs to our clients. Yet, we continue to hear client complaints about mounting fees as their impatience to finish the process creeps up. Challenges remain to keep team calls crisp and focused, our preparation well organized and our clients well informed about our fees from start to finish.  This program will explore techniques to increase our own, and our clients’ mindfulness about the expense of the Collaborative process and to keep costs down whenever we can. 5:45 – 6:30 — networking 6:30 – 7:45 — program and dinner* *The program/dinner fee is $40.  There will be a bar open where members can purchase drinks for an additional cost.   Read More

April Membership Program and Dinner

Join DCACP for the presentation, Grief: The Hidden (and Obvious) Driver of So Much That Happens During Our Cases Presenters: Adele D’Ari Ed. D., Erin Golding, JD and Lisa Herrick Ph.D. Divorce means loss. Loss triggers grief. The unresolved grief of our clients can work its way into positional stances, seemingly irrational reactions, inability to remember information and just plain old sorrow. Our presenters will examine the many faces of grief in our work with clients, and provide guidance on how we can help our clients identify, acknowledge and work through their grief while they are moving through the Collaborative process. 5:45 – 6:30 — networking 6:30 – 7:45 — program and dinner* *The program/dinner fee is $40.  There will be a bar open where members can purchase drinks for an additional cost.

May Membership Program and Dinner

Join DCACP for the presentation, What We Don’t Talk About …..Enough Presenters: Sue Soler LCSW and Sarah Zimmerman, JD              Though the stats tell us that only 10 – 20% of all Collaborative cases “fall out”, they take up 80% of our emotional energy and time. Sometimes, we don’t anticipate or discuss problems that surface early on, and then bad things can happen for both the clients and the team. We need to refresh our thinking on ways to look ahead when trouble arises, and consider the risks of going forward vs. advising our client(s) to consider terminating the case before they complete it. This program will explore various risks and trouble spots – in relationships, in the paperwork, in the protocols, and with the fees –so that our community can be more mindful and effective when cases get really tough. 5:45 – 6:30 — networking 6:30 – 7:45 — program and dinner* *The program/dinner fee is $40.  There will be a bar open where members can purchase drinks for an additional cost.     Read More
