1 - 2 weeks availability


Restorative Justice (RJ) and Restorative Approaches (RA) are popular and appealing as a way of responding to a wide range of conflict, problem and offending behaviour. The growth in use of RJ and RAs has been described as a 'global social movement' that sets out to repair harm, reduce conflict and harmonize civil society. This book takes a close look at the implementation of an RJ approach in the challenging environment of children's residential care homes. It will appeal to people interested in the use of RJ - particularly its use with children and young people; as well as people who are interested in problem and offending behaviour and children in care.
