Restorative Justice is an exciting approach to dealing with crime and wrongdoing which is beginning to take hold within our schools and juvenile justice systems. However, it is still new enough that many people are not aware of what restorative justice is or how it works.
Therefore, we have developed this issue to act as a primer for those who are not familiar with this approach, while at the same time, providing information useful for those already using, or considering using, restorative justice within their programs.
Articles within this issue include:
"Introducing Restorative Justice: Re-Visioning Responses to Wrongdoing" by Avery Calhoun

"Broadening Our Perspectives with Restorative Practices: An Interview with Ted Wachtel" by Colette Kimball
