The International Institute for Restorative Practices is excited to announce the publication of a new book by president and founder Ted Wachtel.
With compelling stories and statistics that demonstrate the promise of the exciting social movement known as restorative practices, Dreaming of a New Reality for the first time synthesizes the practices' many applications – in schools, justice systems, families and workplaces.
This inspirational narrative shows how thirty-five years of dreams and dedication can lead to proven results – healing victims, preventing bullying, curbing conflict and boosting satisfaction and productivity.
Dreaming of a New Reality is a manifesto for a movement: a powerful call to implement restorative practices worldwide – because it works.
"Restorative practices have positive implications for all social settings, from families to schools to workplaces. Drawing from both liberal and conservative values, restorative practices cultivate a society based on participation and mutual self-reliance, where as citizens we take greater responsibility for our own lives."
