Book review of Kelly, V.C. and Thorsborne, M. (2014), The Psychology of Emotion in Restorative Practice.


"This is by far one of the most interesting books I have read on restorative justice recently. I recommend it to anyone with an open mind to the many possibilities that restorative justice can bring both in relation to how we resolve criminal conflicts, but also conflicts within ourselves, between our friends and families … between our mind and soul." (Gavrielides, 2015)
