The 2015 Conference Theme is:
REPAIRING, RESTORING, AND REINTEGRATING: FEMINISM AND RESTORATIVE JUSTICE
Through exploring the meaning of restorative justice within a feminist psychological context, we will examine the ways feminists can help heal and rebuild communities through therapy, research, advocacy, and social change. We recognize that people are driven to engagement in activities that can harm others, communities and society. However, in the spirit of feminist psychology, we also recognize that systems of oppression related to gender, race, among other areas of difference can impact people’s access to economic, socio-emotional and psychological resources, and that a lack of resources drives increased interaction with the criminal justice system. We will explore how collaborating with one another, learning from multiple perspectives, challenging privileges, and leaning into tensions fuels this work.
