Hang on to your hats, mediators, because you are now going to be worth a fortune.  Let me explain.  Everyone says that when Oprah touches something, it turns to gold.  Well she is touching mediation with a new program that touches the concept of mediation.  Indeed, her new network will have a show called Confronting where a victim confronts the offender in an attempt to get closure.

Here is a brief description:
This provocative series documents the powerful and sometimes painful mediation process in which victim and offender come together in the hopes of achieving closure. Mediation programs offer the possibility of catharsis, relief and at its best, forgiveness. In each episode, viewers follow the real life process of victim and offender as they prepare to confront each other, face to face, in the most important conversation of their lives.
