While I mediate, I find myself working with people's memories. The more emotional the story, the stronger the memory. Now I am fascinated by this idea and I am working on publishing in this area. I presented on the topic at the annual Southern California Mediation Association Annual Conference, which was hosted by none other than Pepperdine University School of Law! We discussed how memory impacts conflict, how we can learn from other disciplines than law to effectively work with memory.
