- Wolff, Patrick M. Community Mediation Challenges Bring Blessings, Stifle Burnout.
- Guam’s Inafa’ Maolek Mediation Center, like many such centers across the United States, tries to be all things to all people. This means not only mediation and restorative justice services, but also conflict resolution training services for a diverse variety of groups throughout the community who request such services. The challenge of customizing workshops to meet these needs is another slice that adds spice to this wonderfully exciting work. (excerpt)

- Wolff, Patrick M. Restorative Justice Defuses Conflicts Surrounding Middle School Riot
- In response to a Fall 2004 middle school riot in Guam involving ethnic overtones, the school asked a local non-profit community-based mediation organization to help with the situation. The organization developed a two-day process/method. The first day involved a conflict training resolution workshop, emphasizing diversity education for each group separately. The second day involved four concurrent Restorative Justice Group Conferences in the same room. The group conferences included storytelling and brainstorming ideas on how to prevent future violence; each group then selected the ideas they liked best and created a written agreement the students signed. The final step involved activities to reinforce harmony.
