Restorative Justice: New Horizons in Juvenile Offender Counseling
Ryals, John S. Jr.
Journal of Addictions and Offender Counseling, v25 n1 p18 Oct 2004
Treatment strategies of the juvenile justice system focus singularly on rehabilitation of offenders, and victims and communities are excluded from the rehabilitative process. Restorative justice views victims and communities as essential components in rehabilitative efforts. In this article, the principles and practices of restorative justice, the parallel constructs between restorative justice and counseling philosophy, and implications for juvenile offender counselors are discussed.
