Introducing the concept of restorative justice art: Happy new year gift
Over the last few years, Prof. Gavrielides, RJ4All Founder and Director, has been working on developing a new concept captured as “restorative justice art”. His latest book Gavrielides, T. (2022). Introduction to Restorative Justice Art: Four steps to restoring mental health, London: RJ4All Publications. ISBN: 978-1-911634-52-2 presents evidence of the use of this new concept in the context of mental health.
Gavrielides, however, also makes the argument that restorative justice art can be used within other institutional settings such as schools, prisons, hospitals and the work place.
The e-book includes images as well as evidences from restorative justice art pilots that were carried out by RJ4All and partners in several countries during 2021-23. It also includes a four-step guide with original art used as prompts to achieve a healing effect and restoration through art. A free extract is available from here as part of our 2023 wishes!
COVID19 and its socio-economic impacts created a new pandemic – mental illness. The top down clinical models for mental health are limited in their reach for relationship building and power sharing. This ground-breaking ebook introduces to the extant literature and future practice the concept of “restorative justice art”. Drawing from the theories and practices of restorative justice, the ebook provides a narrative but also a practical guide on how to implement restorative justice art for healing and mental health restoration. The ebook argues that restorative justice art can be a tool that can be used beyond mental health settings including prisons, schools, workplaces and other top down structures within institutions.New Paragraph
