“The drive from out-of-state was long, but well worth the effort to attend Genesis Mediation’s elder care training.  Dr. Kinnison (Randy) provided a professional, comprehensive overview of the various aspects of elder care.  The information is useful for mediators; and, on a personal note, anyone caring for a family member or thinking about for their own aging process.  The most valuable aspect of this training was Dr. Kinnison’s (Randy’s) candid approach to building a collaborative, community-based mediation business, something rarely – if ever –discussed in other mediation training.  Invaluable!!”
