The authors of this presentation discuss family conferencing in South Australia, with emphasis on how victim-offender mediation has come to be used in juvenile jurisdiction to deal with sexual offenses. Based on their experience and expertise in this sphere, and orienting the nature of their paper for practitioners, Doig and Wallace provide background to the history and jurisdiction of the Family Conference Team, review statistics regarding sexual offenses dealt with at family conferences, and cover the process and challenges in victim-offender mediation in sexual matters.
