Source: (2000) In Mediation in Context, ed. Marian Liebmann, 126-139. With an introduction by Marian Liebmann. London: Jessica Kingsley Publishers.

Beginning with an introduction to victim-offender mediation, Wynne continues by describing this type of mediation in practical terms within the United Kingdom context. She discusses guidelines for setting up a mediation service, issues related to training for mediators, the mediation process, reparation, mediation in relation to the criminal justice system, and issues concerning the effectiveness of mediation. Case examples demonstrate important principles and practices of victim-offender mediation.
