Welcome to The ABWA Oceanside Charter Chapter

Kim Torres

Communicating Through Conflict

Conflict is commonplace in our interactions today: at work, while shopping and in conversations with friends and family.  Is this inevitable?   How are we supposed to deal with this?

Conflict causes problems within relationships.  It diminishes self-esteem.  Disputes affect a person’s productivity, mental health and sense of well-being. How can we create an opportunity from conflict?  How can we make peace with our neighbors and friends?

Kim Torres is a professional facilitator for people involved in high conflict situations.  As a Florida Supreme Court-Certified Mediator, Kim moderates difficult conversations and models effective problem-solving skills.  A member of the Florida Bar since 1985, Kim has practiced exclusively as a Mediator since 2000, mediating well over 2000 cases. 

Kim has established a full-time mediation practice in the areas of mortgage foreclosure, civil conflicts, contract business disputes, Homeowner association issues, guardianship and elder care disputes. In addition to running her private mediation business, Kim is actively involved in mediation in the Civil and Family Mediation courts in Brevard County.  

A native of Florida, Kim received both her undergraduate and law degrees from Florida State University. In addition to the Florida Bar, she currently holds memberships with the Florida Academy of Professional Mediators, the Brevard County Bar Association and the Brevard Association of Women Lawyers.

Please join us on Tuesday, January 22 as Kim discusses ways to address challenging situations, and offers techniques for de-escalating emotional interactions.
