Abstract

Restorative justice is an innovative concept that has received some attention in the field of criminal justice but that has been largely overlooked in the social work literature. Restorative initiatives (e.g., victim-offender mediation, family group conferencing) have special relevance for family practice. That these initiatives are effective in meeting participants' needs and consistent with social work values are major arguments of this article.
