This book offers a clear and detailed introduction to the ways that restorative justice can be used to nurture empathy, exploring such key themes as responsibility, shame, forgiveness, and closure. It uses numerous case studies to explore the timeline of restorative justice, from an initial offense, through the criminal justice process, then into the heart of the restorative meeting and beyond. It will serve as the perfect introduction for those new to restorative justice, as well as a best practices guide for acting practitioners.
