Chicago-based Resolution Systems Institute (RSI) believes that a healthy, just society requires a justice system that is accessible to all. RSI designs, operates and evaluates alternative dispute resolution systems that promote access to justice by providing cost-effective, timely and fair conflict resolution.   NAFCM has partnered with RSI to provide NAFCM members with greater access to research related to community mediation. 

You will find a brief description and link to each of the resources below.


Community Mediation Special Topic: Written in collaboration with the National Association for Community Mediation, this Special Topic takes an in-depth look at community mediation by explaining the basics, discussing the relationship between courts and community mediation centers, and delving into the important activities of data tracking and evaluation. Additionally, this topic compiles exemplary studies on the effectiveness of community mediation and other processes that centers use. 


Model Surveys: The Model Mediation Surveys are a collaborative effort of Resolution Systems Institute and the American Bar Association Section of Dispute Resolution to enable courts to obtain high-quality data for evaluating their programs. The Model Survey toolkit includes an overview of the surveys, a party survey an attorney survey, a mediator report to the court, a mediator confidential survey, and instructions on modifying the surveys. 


Model Tools for Mediator Peer Review: Developed through the generous funding of the Illinois Bar Foundation for the Kane County (IL) Child Protection Mediation Program, RSI's Model Tools for Mediator Peer Review are a set of documents that any court mediation program can use to implement a process for having neutrals candidly assess one another's performance. 


Guide to Program Success:  Written by RSI's Executive Director Susan Yates and Director of Research Jennifer Shack, the Guide to Program Success is a step-by-step guide that discusses how to design, manage and evaluate a successful court ADR program.
