Reducing Violence with Restorative Justice and Solution-Focused Approaches

An intervention, which used solution-focused approach combined with restorative justice, for parties in domestic violence cases in a Hawai'i state court was evaluated for participant satisfaction and recidivism reduction. A recently published paper by Lorenn Walker (photo) and Leslie Hayashi about the project is available on line: Pono Kaulike: Reducing Violence with Restorative Justice and Solution-Focused Approaches. Although small sample sizes were researched, results showed almost double recidivism for a control group that did not receive the intervention.
