How we respond to the breakdown in relationships, conflict and wrongdoing is critical to the future well-being of all involved, their families, colleagues and communities (Pranis et al. Peacemaking circles: From crime to community. Living Justice Press, Minnesota, 2003). Treating victims, offenders and significant others with dignity, care, respect and compassion will promote healing, encourage growth and strengthen bonds with others. This requires processes that provide people with an opportunity to share their stories about the impact of the incident, take responsibility for their part, acknowledge the impact and together look at ways to repair the harm and move forwards. This chapter will explore how the practice of restorative justice deals with the aftermath of conflict and wrongdoing and how Affect and Script Psychology (ASP) can provide an explanation of why the range of restorative practices is effective.
