The article focuses on restorative justice in the U.S. for juvenile delinquents in light of the poor outcomes of the traditional justice system where sanctions are imposed to punish bad behavior. It states that restorative justice seeks to protect the community by achieving behavior change through building competencies and engaging both the community and juvenile offenders. It mentions that juveniles in restorative justice are asked to recall their behavior and explore why they engaged in it.
