As a growing community of schools across the globe embrace Restorative Practices, there exists a greater need for resource materials that will give as much careful attention to restorative values and principles as they do to technical guidance around restorative tools. Bill Hansberry has found that sweet spot. Readers who embrace both aspects of this book will be as grounded in their understanding of the vital role of emotion in effective restorative practices as they will be enriched in their ability to practice a variety of restorative approaches. -- Lauren Abramson, Ph.D., Founding Director, Community Conferencing Center, Baltimore, Maryland, USA
As interest grows in the use of restorative practice in schools, this new book by Bill Hansberry is a welcome addition to the resources available on the subject. Drawing on the author's personal experience, it provides both valuable insight into the theory underpinning restorative practice and practical advice on how it can be implemented in a school environment. By using case studies, the author also brings to life in an accessible and engaging way what the benefits of a restorative approach can be. Restorative practice should be integral to every school and this book can help to achieve this. -- Jon Collins, Chief Executive, Restorative Justice Council
