The Policy Press has just published a new book: Implementing restorative justice in children's residential care by Carol Hayden and Dennis Gough. I am sure that it will be of interest to members of the Community Justice Portal and have included some more information on the title below.
“The over-representation of young people from residential care backgrounds in the criminal justice system is an issue of growing concern and understanding what justice means for children in residential care is very important. This book is a timely and intelligent contribution to this complex policy and practice problem.” Will McMahon, Chair, Care Leavers' Association and Policy Director, Centre for Crime and Justice Studies, Kings College, London
With the growth in the use of restorative justice and restorative approaches, this book takes an in-depth look at their applicability in the environment of children's residential care homes.
