Evaluation Results

Research conducted by Choice Research Associates demonstrates that re-entry mediation decreases the predicted probability of recidivism - measured in re-arrest, re-conviction, and re-incarceration. Just the one 2-hour re-entry mediation session decreased the predicted probability of re-incarceration by 10%, with each additional session decreasing it by another 7%, based on the 2014 Recidivism Analysis. The following research reports provide a summary of key findings related to recidivism.

Is re-entry mediation effective?

Recidivism is reduced by 13% after one mediation! And 8% every mediation after that, based on the 2014 Recidivism Analysis.

Does it matter who participates?

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