This article:  Restorative Justice and Social Work links the core values of social workers to Restorative Justice Practice.

It is from 2002, but I really appreciate how well written it is. 

I used to work for Amicus, and it makes me proud the author lists it as an impressive program.

I found this gem on a website I have been spending a lot of time on:  http://www.restorativejustice.org.uk/  You should check it out!  Best Practices, stories, research!
