Dorothy J. Della Noce holds a Ph.D. in Communication Sciences from Temple University and a J.D. from Western New England School of Law. She has taught at the undergraduate, graduate, and professional levels for more than 20 years. Her primary research interest is communication and social change. She is especially interested in how change occurs at the micro-level during human interactions – in such activities as dialogue, conversation, negotiation, mediation, debate, argumentation, group decision making, and team-building. Her publications have appeared in Ohio State Journal on Dispute Resolution, Pepperdine Dispute Resolution Law Journal, Hofstra Labor & Employment Law Journal, Negotiation Journal, Mediation Quarterly, Conflict Resolution Quarterly, and Communication Teacher. She co-authored the book Mediator Communication Competencies: Problem Solving and Transformative Practices (2005, 5th ed.), co-edited the book Transformative Mediation: A Sourcebook (2010), and has contributed chapters to several books. She is a member of the Editorial Boards of two journals: The Independent Scholar and Online Learning Journal. In 2013, Dr. Della Noce founded The Academic Writing Coach, where she provides editing and coaching support for academic writers at the doctoral and faculty levels.
