How Affect Script Psychology Explains How and Why Restorative Practice Works
Edited by Vernon Kelly and Margaret Thorsborne
How and why does restorative practice (RP) work? This book presents the biological theory, affect script psychology (ASP), behind RP, and shows how it works in practice in different settings.
"This is a splendid contribution to clarifying what we know and what we do not yet understand about what makes restorative justice fail or succeed. While much research and reflective practice remains to be done to fill great voids in our understanding, this book takes big steps forward. It is at once theoretically sophisticated and practically useful."
