Editorial Reviews

Review

Peacemaking Circles and Urban Youth illustrates the power of Circles in a unique environment. It tells the story of a youth development program, known as ROCA, that serves high risk young people in one of the most dense, impoverished, ethnically diverse and troubled communities in the U.S. Roca uses Circles as an essential, democratic, decision-making process as well as a respectful and powerful way of communicating. At Roca, Circles are a way of being, grounded in a restorative justice and youth development philosophy and practice. They are aimed ultimately at building new communities [in the sense of MLK s Beloved Community ] both inside the Roca community and in Chelsea neighborhoods. Peacemaking Circles and Urban Youth suggests how Circles could transform communities broadly including schools, neighborhoods, residential facilities, and, as Boyes-Watson shows, even the social services systems charged with assisting them. --Gordon Bazemore, Author of Juvenile Justice Reform and Restorative Justice and Restorative Juvenile Justice and chair of the Department of Criminology and Criminal Justice at Florida Atlantic University

This story of the application of Circle process and restorative principles to a youth serving organization provides an excellent example of what you do after you find a talking piece. By adding the Circle process to their best youth development practices, Roca started making community, not just connecting to it. Roca s story has insights for schools, adult serving agencies, businesses, block clubs, and the faith community. Carolyn tells this story with the eye of a participant: each observation and each anecdote is as fresh as last night s Circle. --Nancy Riestenberg, Prevention specialist, Minnesota School Safety Center/Minnesota Department of Education

I am thrilled to see this book come to print. Everywhere I do Circle training with people working with youth, I see a need for this book. The deeply moving work with youth at ROCA and Carolyn s profound capacity for observation and reflection offer inspiration, wisdom, and hope that as a society we can do better for our young people than we have been doing. In the process of making space for healing our youth, we will heal ourselves. --Kay Pranis, Circle trainer, coauthor of Peacemaking Circles: From Crime to Community --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
