RSI is pleased to introduce a new Special Topic to its collection. RSI’s Special Topics delve into various topics related to court ADR. Written by Director of Research Jennifer Shack, Associate Director Eric Slepak-Cherney and Program Manager Kevin Malone, the Child Protection Mediation Special Topic, explores the unique world of child protection mediation.
Child protection mediation is not like mediation in other contexts and its makeup and goals change as a case moves through different phases, from intake through the permanent placement of the child. This Special Topic explains the context within which mediation operates, provides evidence-based guidance on program design and implementation and summarizes the research on the effectiveness of child protection mediation. This Special Topic is available to view online and is also available for download.
