LWN209 Case Management

Unit synopsis

To work effectively as a family dispute resolution practitioner (FDRP), you need to develop a broad range of knowledge, skills and strategies to conduct intake and screening and to facilitate family dispute resolution processes with families in high conflict. You undertake this unit after successful completion of LWN206 Mediation and LWN204 Family Dispute Resolution and if you are seeking to become an accredited FDRP with the Commonwealth Attorney-General's Department. You will participate in a range of simulations and clinical activities to further develop your family dispute resolution knowledge, skills and strategies. In addition to this unit, you must undertake 20 hours of supervised FDR practice to become an accredited FDRP. This may be completed through the QUT Family Mediation Practice short course or with another approved FDR supervisor. A certificate of completion that you can use to apply for FDRP accreditation with the Commonwealth Attorney-General's Department will only be issued on completion of both this unit and the further 20 hours of FDR supervised practice, and written evidence of completion of this further supervision.
