In recent years the mediation movement has seen tremendous growth with significant advances being made in both research and practice. Despite these advances, researchers and practitioners have remained relatively isolated from one another. Bridging the gap, COMMUNITY MEDIATION is dedicated to the mutual education of both researchers and mediators. It makes the findings of research accessible to practitioners and the issues of concern to practice available to researchers. Thus, this handbook affords researchers an excellent opportunity to learn more about actual techniques and enables practitioners to benefit from the latest research in the field.

“This text is a timely and constructive effort to provide an overview of the current status of community mediation in the United States....a valuable resource addition to any community-oriented practitioner's or researcher's library.”
