Considered to be the father of Restorative Justice, Howard Zehr, offers us a transformative understanding of justice. There is an apparent need to restore order and tranquility. Everyone desires peace, but there’s an element of crime. Those who who fall victim to crime are often left in a state of despair or despondency. Author Zehr ventures to fill in the void by instituting practical principles to apply to restoration to the lives of both victim and those who committed crime.
