Other Educational Opportunities

If you’re interested in attending a non-CDI program for FCST credit or to satisfy the Basic Training requirement for membership, please check with CDI first to ensure that it meets the FCST requirements (1: it is a training that directly relates to the skills necessary to engage in interest-based negotiations and Collaborative Practice; 2: it concentrates on process rather than substance and should be highly interactive; 3: it is designed to enhance a professionals’ ability to fulfill their role on a Collaborative team.) Please email the program title, description and program provider’s name to
