Testimonials from past participants of our Elder Mediation Trainings:

 "This exceeded my expectations!  The Elder Decisions Mediation Training makes a compelling case for why we need to step up to this national challenge and makes it possible for mediators to step into these critical but delicate family conversations.  I got a great return on my investment: information-dense, practical, inspiring -- allowing me to extend my company's services to meet this growing demand."
     Marina A. Piscolish, Ph.D.

"Usually when one goes to a conference or training it is considered successful if one takes away one memorable piece of information from the whole event. In my case my expectations were higher given that I had a return trip of some 40 hours travelling time. I found all the presenters so knowledgeable and so passionate about their topics that I would have considered the training a huge success had I only been able to listen to any single one of them! ...I will certainly be looking to attend another of their events."
     David Bogan, Author of Avoid Retirement & Stay Alive & 
     and What's Keeping You Awake at Night 
     International Mediation Services, Auckland, New Zealand

“Elder Decisions’ Advanced Elder Mediation Training...was excellent; actually the best I have ever experienced.  It was well organized (and) the subject matter was completely covered.  (This was) the most sequentially programmed and clearly presented (training) I have yet attended.”
     Jane Thayer, Ph.D.
     Mediator, Co- author of Elderescence: The Gift of Longevity
