COVID19 and its socio-economic impacts created a new pandemic – mental illness. The top down clinical models for mental health are limited in their reach for relationship building and power sharing. This ground-breaking ebook introduces to the extant literature and future practice the concept of “restorative justice art”. Drawing from the theories and practices of restorative justice, the ebook provides a narrative but also a practical guide on how to implement restorative justice art for healing and mental health restoration. The ebook argues that restorative justice art can be a tool that can be used beyond mental health settings including prisons, schools, workplaces and other top down structures within institutions.
The e-book includes images as well as evidences from restorative justice art pilots that were carried out in several countries during 2021-23. It also includes a four-step guide with original art used as prompts to achieve a healing effect and restoration through art.
