Editorial Reviews


"There are many books dealing with social work and restorative justice separately. However, to my knowledge, no books have been published like this one, which analyzes the relations and interactions of these two professional disciplines. Hence, the essays in this volume provide insights that are unavailable in the literature that focuses on each practice in isolation from the other." -- David G. Gil, Professor of Social Policy, Brandeis University

"Social work practice is at a crossroad. In our rapidly changing world, restorative justice provides a needed framework for assisting individuals, families, and communities following adverse events in which victim and offender both merit humanitarian concern. This groundbreaking text builds on the historical values of social work, while capturing an emerging international social movement, and will help practitioners understand a method of intervention that promotes social justice and healing in a variety of venues and settings." -- Roberta R. Greene, Professor and the Louis and Ann Wolens Centennial Chair in Gerontology and Social Welfare, School of Social Work, University of Texas at Austin

"A timely and invaluable resource, this landmark book describes social work's unique role in community conferencing, school anti-bullying programming, family group counseling, and reparative justice. Feminist and global perspectives are infused throughout. Perhaps now social workers will take the helm in the field of restorative justice, a field in which the values of social work are so clearly reflected." -- Katherine van Wormer, Professor of Social Work, University of Northern Iowa

"Social work and restorative justice have much to gain from each other. Indeed, we need each other! This book makes a significant contribution to an essential dialogue and collaboration." -- From the Afterword by Lorraine Stutzman Amstutz and Howard Zehr

"The editors of this text have provided practitioners and scholars alike with a text that should be as accessible and valuable to the uninitiated as it is to those who have years of restorative justice practice experience." -- Robert McAndrews, School of Social Work, Salem State University, Journal of Sociology and Social Welfare
