High Conflict Diversion Instructor Training

We are very excited that you have expressed interest in our High Conflict Diversion Program™ (HCDP). The program was founded by Brook Olsen in 2006 as a resource for helping parents in a high conflict divorce work out custody issues, and to educate therapists, attorneys and family court professionals in alternative ways to deal with high conflict divorce.

The program, currently in San Diego County, is both court-ordered and non-court ordered and attended by both parents in high-conflict custody battles. The High Conflict Diversion Program is already recognized in many counties in California, Florida, Texas, New Jersey, Colorado, Oregon, Utah, Minnesota, North Carolina, Illinois, Puerto Rico, Alberta Canada, and Ontario Canada, and continues to grow throughout the U.S. and Canada.
