Endorsements for Kate Scharff and Lisa Herrick’s Professional Trainings:

“Kate Scharff and Lisa Herrick are among the best of the best that the Collaborative Practice community has to offer. Our practice group has sponsored several big trainings and the one CPTI did (featuring both Kate and Lisa) was the best. I have also been to some of Kate and Lisa’s workshops at IACP forums and been impressed. They are deeply involved in this work and in the transformative possibilities that can be facilitated by it. As presenters, they are very present, authentic and they live the work we do right in the moment in their trainings. They both teach and show us how to advance as practitioners, and provide time to practice and process the learning. Frankly, I cant say enough good things about them.

“I am always on the search for a deeper understanding of Collaborative Practice and new ways to share the nature of our work with both clients and other practitioners. Kate and Lisa are very talented in helping others with this deeper understanding of the work and helping us learn the tools through which we can express that understanding in our cases.

[Their workshops at IACP Forums] have been instrumental to me in my Collaborative work, trainings, and writings. I think so highly of their book, Navigating Emotional Currents in Collaborative Divorce, that I wrote a book review for the World of Collaborative Practice saying that reading the book as part of our practice group work should be mandatory. Here is a link to the book review:  http://theworldofcollaborativepractice.com/?p=1626

I really do not know where they come up with this stuff, but it really is powerful material and they present it in a way that illustrates why the concepts they are teaching are important and which demonstrates the skills in such a way that I have come away with a wealth of information from each of the workshops of theirs that I have attended.

As you can tell, I am a Kate and Lisa fan. If your practice group has not had the experience of training with them yet, I cannot recommend them highly enough. The financial investment that you make in bringing them to town will stay with the members of your practice group for years to come.”
