A Mediator’s Assessment of Safety Issues and Concerns

The Viola J. Taliaferro Family and Children Mediation Clinic and the Indiana University Maurer School of Law have been studying screening for intimate partner violence and/or abuse in family mediation for several years.  As a result of their studies they developed a new screening method designed to be given as an interview.  The assessment, Mediator’s Assessment of Safety Issues and Concerns or MASIC, was featured in an article in the Family Court Review in October 2010 and was recently revised with minor modification by the Clinic.  The Clinic has published and made the MASIC available to the public.  Complements of Professor Amy G. Applegate and her colleagues, the instructions for the use of the MASIC and the MASIC are available for use of interested mediators. The Clinic is interested in mediators who use the MASIC and who may be interested in participating in research on its use.
