This manual describes the history, concepts, and practices of what it refers to as “balanced and restorative justice” and offers suggestions for implementing these practices in communities. The manual was written as a resource for the legal community of California in hopes of encouraging judges to partner with community stakeholders to develop collaborative approaches that help youth. This manual also seeks to invite interested community stakeholders to participate in implementing restorative practices.
