According to this article in Turkish Weekly, President George W. Bush may become a mediator between Turkey and Armenia. Good Luck, Mr. President! [I have to be neutral here and not give my professional or personal opinion – Florida Rules for Certified and Court-Appointed Mediators, Rule 10.370, Professional Advice Or Opinion.]
What about Florida Rules for Certified and Court-Appointed Mediators, Rule 10.630, Professional Competence which states:
A mediator shall acquire and maintain professional competence in mediation. A mediator shall regularly participate in educational activities promoting professional growth.
Okay, okay – if not that, then what about the following:
Florida Rules for Certified and Court-Appointed Mediators, Rule 10.640. Skill and Experience.
A mediator shall decline an appointment, withdraw, or request appropriate assistance when the facts and circumstances of the case are beyond the mediator’s skill or experience.
So, what do you think?!? Would mediation training be helpful?!? How about co-mediation?!? Any volunteers?
