Restorative Justice: Principles, Practices, and Application
O'Brien, Sandra Pavelka
Prevention Researcher, v14 suppl p16-17 Dec 2007
A modern-day movement is transforming the way that communities and justice systems think about and respond to crime and wrongful occurrences. This response implements a holistic continuum of services, providing for prevention, intervention, diversion, commitment, probation, reentry, and aftercare. This approach--known as restorative justice--seeks to balance the needs of the victim and the community with consequences for the offender, and requires that each should be actively involved in the process to the greatest extent possible. This article will define restorative justice, outline its core principles, and present practical models and application for justice and educational systems. (Contains 1 table.)
