Written by RSI's Director of Research Jennifer Shack, Associate Director Eric Slepak-Cherney, and Program Manager Kevin Malone this Special Topic explores the unique world of child protection mediation. Child protection mediation is not like mediation in other contexts. And its makeup and goals change as a case moves through different phases, from intake through the permanent placement of the child. This Special Topic explains the context within which mediation operates, provides evidence-based guidance on program design and implementation, and summarizes the research on the effectiveness of child protection mediation.
