Strengthen your skills in family dispute resolution with scope to diversify and advance your career

This qualification reflects the role of family dispute resolution practitioners who provide services and interventions for families experiencing high levels of relationship conflict where clients may be involved in the family law system. They may work as independent practitioners or in larger agencies.

Dispute resolution in this qualification has a direct link to the provisions of the Family Law Act 1975 and the Family Law (Family Dispute Resolution Practitioners) Regulations 2008. Practitioners make high level, independent, complex judgements in highly specialised contexts. Some practitioner roles may also involve full responsibility and accountability for all aspects of own work as well as responsibility for broader management functions such as analysis, program planning, budgeting and strategy design.

Students are required to undertake 50 hours of practical placement in order to be awarded this qualification.
