Emphasizing a sensitivity to victims, this is a comprehensive manual for training practitioners in victim offender mediation. It includes the following material: overview of victim offender mediation (e.g., when are cases referred, how it is different from other mediation, what is research showing); key points in the training and background narrative for this kind of mediation (e.g., what is restorative justice, understanding crime victims, working with offenders); and sample letters and restitution agreements.
