Collaborative practice in the Mainstream Media

Collaborative Practice has been the subject of numerous interviews, videos, and articles in the mainstream media. The following is a mere sampling, including links when available, of collaborative practice as exhibited in the media. The purpose of providing these links and citations is to help facilitate the important public education and public awareness campaigns being conducted by both practice groups of which I am a member. (International Academy of Collaborative Professionals  and The Collaborative Law Institute, Minnesota ) If you come across a dead link, please advise me so I can remove the link. If you have a link or copy of an article you are willing to share, or one for which I have not yet linked, please feel free to send that information as well. Thank you.
