The Little Book of Family Group Conferences (New Zealand Style)

Summary

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. A title in The Little Books of Justice and Peacebuilding Series, this Little Book describes the basics and rationale for this approach to juvenile justice, as well as how an FGC is conducted. This audiobook includes a bonus conversation with series editor Howard Zehr and sujatha baliga, director and Just Beginnings collaborative fellow of the restorative justice project.

Murphy

Summary

Murphy's law: Anything that can go wrong will go wrong.  As Satan's Fury's sergeant-at-arms, it was my job to stay one step ahead. It was up to me to make sure the club was ready when things went awry. I had to anticipate our enemies' every move and plan accordingly. I couldn't let Murphy's law bite me in the ass, so I created a set of rules to follow.  The club comes first. Always have your brother's back. Don't make promises you can't keep. Don't buy into other people's bulls--t. Never let your emotions rule you.  I thought they'd prepare me for anything, but I was wrong. Nothing could've prepared me for Riley Nichols - the farmer's daughter with coal black eyes and a fiery tongue. She took me by surprise, mesmerizing me with her strength and tempting me with her innocence. I wanted to make her mine, but having her meant breaking my rules - every last one of them. Murphy is audiobook four of the Satan's Fury MC Memphis Chapter series. While this audiobook is a continuation of audiobook three, it can be listened to as a stand-alone. Murphy is a full-length novel that is intended for mature audiences only due to the explicit language and violence. Contains no cheating and a swoon-worthy HEA.

One More Run

Summary

In August of 2021, they tried to disprove the adage that violence doesn’t solve anything — by killing everyone. No people, no problems. Fifty years later, humanity has emerged from the ashes. As if nuclear war didn’t do enough, a cruel virus followed on its heels, reducing many survivors to mindless killers. Drivers are the only link between scattered towns. Anyone with the skill to maintain a vehicle (and the balls to hit the road) can seek fortune and glory running jobs for the Roadhouse. Kevin longs to trade in his steering wheel for a Roadhouse of his own, no longer the idiot dodging bullets for a handful of coins. He’s one run away from retiring when a strange woman begs him for a ride to Harrisburg. Desperation has a way of getting a man to do stupid things, like running a package so valuable half the Wildlands will come after him. All his life, Kevin cared mostly about himself — and his car — yet this woman makes him wonder if there’s more to life than selling food, booze, and weapons to reckless fools.  Her past comes calling, leaving Kevin at a fork in the road: Fulfill his dream, or let it go for something he never thought he’d want: love.

The Big Book of Restorative Justice

1 rating

Summary

For the first time, the four most popular restorative justice audiobooks in the Justice & Peacebuilding series - The Little Book of Restorative Justice: Revised and Updated, The Little Book of Victim Offender Conferencing, The Little Book of Family Group Conferences, and The Little Book of Circle Processes - are available in one audio volume. Restorative justice, with its emphasis on identifying the justice needs of everyone involved in a crime, is a worldwide movement of growing influence that is helping victims and communities heal while holding criminals accountable for their actions. This is not a soft-on-crime, feel-good philosophy, but rather a concrete effort to bring justice and healing to everyone involved in a crime. Circle processes draw from the Native American tradition of gathering in a circle to solve problems as a community. Peacemaking circles are used in neighborhoods, in schools, in the workplace, and in social services to support victims of all kinds, resolve behavior problems, and create positive climates. Each book is written by a scholar at the forefront of these movements, making this important listening for classrooms, community leaders, and anyone involved with conflict resolution.
