Is re-entry mediation effective?

Those who participate in mediation appear to have a consistently lower likelihood of recidivism across a host of measures compared to those who did not participate.

Does it matter who participates?

Research suggests that the improvements in recidivism are associated with the process rather than specific relationships.
