Nunes notes that community justice focuses on repairing the harm experienced by victims, communities, and society. It also seeks to raise an offender’s awareness of the harm he or she caused by offending. With this in mind, Nunes sketches various programs of the Community Corrections Association: a cognitive program oriented toward change in offender thinking; victim impact panels; counseling to change domestic violence offenders; community service; and promotion of restorative justice.
