About the Event

Equipping Child Welfare Leaders

Lisa Welter has led in Minnesota's nonprofit prevention services for families and children while simultaneously developed successful community collaboratives in eighteen counties guiding human services partnerships with area churches and nonprofits. She and her team of eight child welfare entities won awards from MSSA Community Collaboration 2020, U of MN Humphrey School 2019 Local Government Innovation, and successfully passed a 2017 Foster Care Recruitment bill with Anoka County.

In this work, she found something missing. All providers needed a skillset or a partner willing to support families to repair the harm done to children and to address ongoing conflict that causes families long-term interaction with providers.

Lisa opened The Katallasso Group in 2020 and with her decade of experience as a family mediator and restorative practices; she crafted and proposed a hybrid family mediation 43 hr training and gained quick approval of the MN State Court Administrator (SCA). Transformative Family Mediation is now a court-certified training including both family mediation and circles (for families) intended to address harm and bring accountability while engaging the surrounding community to help!.
