BARJ is a systemic program model that works in schools and justice systems
BARJ, developed by Dennis Maloney was originally conceived of as two triangles.
This framework provides 3 variables:
|Community||Protection of the Community|
|Victim||Protection of the Victim|
|Offender||Accountability of the Offender||Competency Development of the Offender|
Dr. Derek Cabrera reconceptualized these two triangles as being integrated.
|Community||Accountability of the Community||Protection of the Community||Competency Development of the Community|
|Victim||Accountability of the Victim||Protection of the Victim||Competency Development of the Victim|
|Offender||Accountability of the Offender||Protection of the Offender||Competency Development of the Offender|
The number of variables of the integrated model is 9. This integration makes a significant difference in the ways that BARJ are implemented. CRL has worked with schools and justice departments to implement BARJ policies and practices such as FGC and Victim-Offender Mediation. Contact us to learn how.
