Criminal Justice/Sociology Faculty News
Dr. Karen Lischinsky, Associate Professor of Criminal Justice and Sociology at Curry College has again been recognized on a national level for her work with the Massachusetts Restorative Justice Collaborative, most recently, in an article published in the 'Impact: What's Working' section of the The Huffington Post.
The article, entitled 'A Restorative Promise Inside a Prison', highlights the efforts of Dr. Lischinsky - the Collaborative's volunteer coordinator - and other key members of the group, who worked with over a hundred inmates at the Massachusetts Correctional Institution (MCI) in Norfolk in June of 2015.
The two-day Restorative Justice and Responsibility Retreat introduced inmates to the "principles of rehabilitation, community responsibility, and personal introspection." The retreat helps to bring perpetrators and victims of violent crime together for a dialogue to facilitate healing and break the cycle of violence, among other desired outcomes.
