New to RSI’s Resource Center

Nicole Wilmet, March 26th, 2019

We are pleased to introduce two new program evaluation resources from RSI’s Director of Research Jennifer Shack to you!

Last month, Jen discussed findings from her recent evaluation of Ohio’s civil stalking pilot mediation program. This month, the final report on the evaluation is now available for download. This evaluation covers ten jurisdictions and examines mediation outcomes, agreement sustainability, agreement provisions, and the impact of referral to mediation on the probability of a full hearing being held. Additionally, the evaluation also looks at the experience of the program’s participants.

In November, we introduced Saving Homes, Building Understanding: An Evaluation of Eight Foreclosure Mediation Programs Funded by the Illinois Attorney General. In addition to access to the full evaluation and digital summary, we are pleased to introduce that individual circuit extracts from the study are now available for download. These circuit extracts summarize the study’s findings for Illinois’ 1st, 6th, 16th, 17th, 19th, 20th, and 21st judicial circuits.
