Concerted efforts by Florida Dispute Resolution Center Director Sharon Press and UFLaw Institute for Dispute Resolution (IDR) Director Don Peters (both at right, with IDR Associate Directors Alison Gerencser and Jonathon Cohen) helped bring nearly 150 participants to UFLaw in January for the symposium, “Transformative Mediation: Fulfilling the Promise.” Topics included Florida research and its implications for mediation in court-connected programs, mediator training, and transformative mediation myths and misconceptions. The event was sponsored by IDR and the Florida Dispute Resolution Center, which assists the Supreme Court of Florida mediation board and committees, certifies mediators and mediation training programs, sponsors an annual conference for mediators, and trains volunteer mediators.
