The results of this study suggest that offender and victim satisfaction is high immediately following a YJC.
Even 4 months after a YJC, victim satisfaction with most aspects of conferencing remains high. Satisfaction levels may
be increased still further if, at some point prior to the end of the statutory time-period for completing the plan, victims were
provided with feedback about the offender’s progress towards completing the outcome plan. Further research also needs
to be conducted comparing victim satisfaction following a conference with victim satisfaction following a court appearance. (excerpt)
