Welcome to my home page. After 36 years of service, I left the University of South Australia on July 31, 2009 and am now an Adjunct Associate Professor with the School of Psychology, Social Work & Social Policy and with the Centre for Peace and Security. I was previously a Head of the School of Social Work & Social Policy and for many years I was the Director of Postgraduate Studies and the Research Portfolio Leader in the School and the Coordinator of the Centre for Peace, Conflict and Mediation (CPCM) - one of the groups that was attached to the Hawke Research Istitute.

From 1993 to 2009, I was also the initiator and Program Director of four post-graduate courses in the School of Psychology, Social Work & Social Policy - the Doctor of Human Service Research; the Master of Mediation and Conflict Resolution, Graduate Diploma in Mediation and Conflict Resolution and the Graduate Certificate in Mediation.

I have continued to conduct research and supervise PhD students in my Adjunct role at UniSA. I am also a Visiting Professor and Examiner for the Mediation and Conflict Intervention programs at the National Uiversity of Ireland, Maynooth. In private practice, I conduct consultancies, mediate disputes, and run conflict resolution and mediation training programs. For example, since leaving the University I have conducted conflict resolution and mediation training programs and consultancies for organisations such as the National Family Mediation Service in Ireland, the SA Department of Health, the Australian Education Union, the Department for Education and Children's Services, Local Councils and Multicultural SA and have been invited to present Keynote papers at national conferences and seminars in Ausralia, New Zealand, Ireland, Scotland, Hong Kong and the Philippine Islands. In May 2013 I convened the 6th World Summit on Mediation with Age-Related Issues in Adelaide, in partnership with the Elder Mediation International Network (EMIN), and I am now the Chairperson of a Steering Committee which is forming a new Elder Mediation Australasia Network. As the inaugural and ongoing President of the Asia Pacific Mediation Forum, I am overseeing the 6th APMF World Summit in Manila in December 2013. The easiest way to contact me is by email - dale.bagshaw@unisa.edu.au or on my mobile phone +61[0]408805641.
