In this video, an overview of the victim sensitive dialogue process in crimes of severe violence is provided by Dr. Mark Umbreit of the Center for Restorative Justice & Peacemaking at the University of Minnesota. The importance of victim sensitive procedures and humanistic, "dialogue-driven" mediation is highlighted. Segments of separate preparation meetings with the victim and the offender/inmate are shown, followed by a face-to-face meeting of the victim and offender in the presence of a highly trained mediator and co-mediator. The case portrayed is a simulation of an actual murder case. (distributor's description)
