The purpose of ‘kooky’ in restorative justice circles
from Kris Miner's blog Restorative Justice and Circles: People that participate in Circles with me, become really honest about what they thought at first. This honest testimony about what people thought about a Circle at first, and what they think now is an endorsement for the process. The most recent description like this used the term ” kooky“. It’s been mentioned that they seemed wierd. One advocate says that when I first described it he thought it was for little kids. Now he tells people how effective the Circle is. He participates strongly and completely in every Circle we have done together, from college classes, to residential treatment programs, half-way houses and underage consumption panels.

Good news from Canada on Circles of Support and Accountability
from Bruce Cheadle's article in The Canadian Press: The Harper government has agreed to fund a program aimed at keeping convicted sex offenders from committing more crimes - apparently reversing an earlier rejection of the acclaimed project. Some $7.4 million in federal funding will be provided over five years for Circles of Support and Accountability, the office of Public Safety Minister Peter Van Loan confirmed Thursday. "By deciding today to fund this program, our government is taking concrete action to make our communities safer," spokesman Chris McCluskey said in an email. The five-year deal will help the largely volunteer organization double the number of sex offenders in the program to about 300 next year, and more closely monitor results to determine what works best with offenders once they've served their sentences.

What is a justice circle and why should I be interested?
From Ms. W's Summer Reading Blog: A Justice Circle is a one time gathering of all people affected by a particular incident of youth crime. The goal of a Circle is to allow people who have been directly involved in an incident to decide together what the outcome should be. Based in the philosophy of Restorative Justice, the focus is on offender accountability, problem solving and creating an equal voice for victim and offender.

File Schechtman, Lisa. Applications of Peacemaking Circles in Meeting the Mental Health Needs of Torture Survivors
Although restorative justice is based in very old traditional practices, its widespread use in the modern criminal justice system is a relatively recent phenomenon, as is described in further detail in Chapter 4. Restorative justice is increasingly a topic of serious research and its practice is now more common than even a decade earlier. However, sub-practices of restorative justice— particularly Peacemaking Circles, the topic of this paper—in mental health settings and research into applications thereof are apparently rare and quite limited. As such, the work contained herein is highly theoretical, combining a substantial literature review with limited primary research designed to assist in the proposal of applications of Peacemaking Circles to the mental health of torture survivors and other survivors of human rights violations.
