Book Release - Restorative Justice Integrating Theory, Research and Practice

We're excited to announce that Caryn has co-authored a new textbook with Aida Y. Hass-Wisecup, Restorative Justice: Integrating Theory, Research and Practice, available from Carolina Academic Press (HERE)  
This work aims to "not only help educate people about restorative justice, but encourage others to reflect on what justice means to them and their community." (xix) Chapters include descriptions of the theories, history, values, and contexts that have informed restorative justice work, as well as processes and practices that are commonly utilized. These include: victim-offender mediation, family group conferencing, victim impact panels, peacemaking circles, and reparative boards. It concludes with a critical look at both pitfalls and limitations restorative justice practitioners have encountered, as well as the possible future for restorative processes.
