Little Book Of Family Group Conferences New Zealand Style
Family Group Conferences, the primary forum for dealing with juvenile crime in New Zealand, are now being used around the world to bring healing and restoration to communities, following a crime.
This book includes the basics and rationale for this approach to crime, as well as the tools for conducting a Family Group Conference.
Family Group Conferences (FGCs) are the primary forum in New Zealand for dealing with juvenile crime as well as child welfare issues. This third volume in The Little Books of Justice and Peacebuilding Series is about the juvenile justice system that is built around these conferences.
Since their introduction in New Zealand, Family Group Conferences have been adopted and adapted in many places throughout the world. They have been applied in many arenas including child welfare, school discipline, and criminal justice, both juvenile and adult. In fact, FGCs have emerged as one of the most promising models of restorative justice.
This Little Book describes the basics and rationale for this approach to juvenile justice, as well as how an FGC is conducted.
A title in The Little Books of Justice and Peacebuilding Series.
The old hotel sat solemnly by itself on a deserted road just outside a very small town, close to the border of California and Nevada. The building was old, though not as old as some in the area, and not as well kept as those nestled in the downtown proper. Paint peeled here and there, faded by the sun, and the makeshift fence had all but fallen down. There were 20 rooms, 20 queen-sized beds, 20 bathrooms. The building formed a backward L, with the office on the far end and the upward stroke of the L running back away from the highway. In the crook of the L, out of view of speeding truckers and family SUV's heading on vacation, an almost empty artificially blue pool collected stray leaves and dead wasps.
