Duncum Center to host mediation training in DallasPosted March 07, 2014
ACU's Duncum Center for Conflict Resolution will host a 40-hour mediation training seminar in Dallas March 17-21. Trainers Joe L. Cope, J.D., and Lori Anne Shaw, M.S., will guide participants in identifying and applying creative conflict resolution techniques.
"We increasingly find ourselves being shaped by conflicts, those in our personal lives and in the lives of others around us," says Cope. "Our course is perfect for anyone who wants to learn how to address conflict with confidence and poise, not just for those interested in a career in mediation."
Joe L. Cope holds a law degree from the Texas Tech University School of Law and a certificate in dispute resolution from the Pepperdine University School of Law. He serves as the Duncum Center for Conflict Resolution's executive director. Lori Anne Shaw received her M.S. in psychology and graduate certificate in conflict resolution from ACU. The two collaborate in teaching Negotiation and Mediation. Dr. Shaw also teaches Managing Conflict in Schools, Managing Conflict in the Workplace, Communication and Conflict Theory, and Advanced Mediation classes at ACU.
This training seminar exceeds Texas Mediation Trainers Roundtable Standards. Participants in graduate school earn 37.25 hours of CEUs, and law students have the opportunity to earn 2.50 ethics hours of MCLEs. The basic 40-hour Mediation Training is pending approval for re-certification credits toward PHR, SPHR and GPHR.
