What They Are Saying About Us
"I first came to Duncum Center for Conflict Resolution for the 40-hour Basic Mediation Training earlier this year. The combination of theory and “fish bowl” role plays was very effective. By the end of the week, I had made plans to return for the Advanced Family Mediation training. When I did, I was just as pleased as at first. I recommend the Duncum Center for Conflict Resolution to anyone seeking top-notch training!"
- Roger Lenox, Attorney, Dallas, TX
"I have been to both the Basic Mediation and Advanced Family Mediation training at the Duncum Center and I cannot say enough great things about both of these courses. You have incredibly talented and well-qualified presenters, and you always treat everyone like family and make the training fun. You have also done a great job preparing me for a future in mediation."
- Wendy McMillon, Attorney, McKinney, TX
A Note to Organizational Leaders
Whether conflict is between employees or clients, the cost of conflict can be overwhelming. Attrition, training and legal costs incurred by an organization entrenched in conflict not only impact the budget, they affect morale and productivity. There are long-term and short-term effects. Everyone loses.
