Using Restorative Practices in Group Treatment
Steiner, Mary; Johnson, Matt
Reclaiming Children and Youth: The Journal of Strength-based Interventions, v12 n1 p53-57 Spr 2003
Providing a safe environment for youth placed out of their home is essential to the success of at-risk youth. An environment that also offers the opportunity to empower the youth to partner in his or her own healing and help others in the environment clearly builds on the strengths inherent in youth. Transferring these strengths and reconnecting the youth to their community has long been a challenge for youth placed out of the home. This article describes a unique program for girls that blends the strengths of a peer-empowered therapeutic environment for treatment needs and restorative justice practices to help the youth transition back to their home community.
