This study examines differences in victim satisfaction and attitudes toward victim-offender mediation based on participation in a mediation session with either adult or juvenile offenders. The data came from victim-offender programs in two sites: Minneapolis, Minnesota; and Winnipeg, Manitoba. The data were collected in post-mediation interviews with victims.
