Healing from Sexual Violence
The Case for Vicarious Restorative Justice
by Alissa Ackerman, PhD, and Jill Levenson, PhD

Vicarious restorative justice (VRJ) is a practice that allows individuals who have experienced sexual harm to sit face to face with individuals who have perpetrated it. The concept of VRJ is not new, but it has not been utilized for healing from sexual trauma until recently.

Healing from Sexual Violence explains what vicarious restorative justice is and how it promotes healing without retraumatizing people. It provides a solid framework for incorporating VRJ into clinical practices and communities with material on using trauma-informed approaches. The authors include real-life examples of the power of VRJ, including their own personal stories. 

This is a book that is both visionary and practical.
