Trainers Directory

Trainers Directory

The information compiled for this Trainers Directory is designed to help you and your organization identify trainers and training groups who will meet your training needs. The information is of necessity quite general and we suggest that you contact each trainer or training group. A wide variety of practice and training approaches are available that expand upon or modify the lawyer-only or full interdisciplinary team model. When choosing a trainer or training group, it is advisable to have a discussion, including, but not limited to:

  • The practice experience of each trainer
  • The structure of their practice group
  • Objectives and scope of the trainings offered
  • The training philosophy and model or approaches which will be part of the training
  • References to contact
  • Outlines to review

The IACP does not endorse any individual trainers or training groups and does not regulate the delivery of training services.
