This submission will describe the implicit nature of much of the restorative justice discourse and place this within a context of the general impoverishment of much of the practice within the community services sector. It will then explore the progression towards explicit practice, its definition, the elements of Affective Practice and draw on a number of case studies which illustrate the opportunities created through the explicit sharing of the theories and practice with individuals, families, teachers and students. In conclusion it will address each of the terms of reference and provide some recommendations for the Committee.
