Criminologist Brenda Morrison, co-director of the Centre for Restorative Justice at SFU, was in a national Canadian Press story, saying the needs of Darcie Clark-whose three children were killed by her mentally ill husband, Alan Schoenborn-must be equally considered when a panel re-evaluates whether he should get day-passes into the community. "Our system is more offender-focused," said Morrison.
The Bowen Island Undercurrent covered a restorative-justice event organized there by Morrison. "Tissues were passed around . . . as images of Reena Virk flashed across the screen before an audience of about 70 parents, teenagers and community members. Reena's life found a brutal end 13 years ago. Her parents, Suman and Manjit Virk, came to Bowen Island to tell their story. . . . "Brenda Morrison said, "Listening and storytelling are functions of healthy relationships.
Morrison said: "Victims need a place where they can work through those layers of emotions following the crime.

Brenda Morrison, director of the Centre for Restorative Justice at British Columbia's Simon Fraser University, commended the school's administration for taking action that went against the public outcry for conventional disciplinary measures.
"I'm in awe of the level of commitment, courage, compassion and time that Dalhousie has been willing to give this process," said Morrison, who has supported the process at Dalhousie by answering questions from facilitators.
Morrison said there is plenty of research supporting restorative justice programs at the grade-school level in the United States outside the justice system, where the process originated, but it hasn't made it to universities.
"In Canada, Dalhousie is in the lead," she said, adding she believes the school's approach will become a benchmark for other universities.

Brenda Morrison
Vice Chair
Brenda Morrison returned to Vancouver in 2006 to work at the Centre for Restorative Justice at Simon Fraser University, where she teaches both undergraduate and graduate courses in restorative justice and continues her research. While Brenda was born and attended school on the North Shore, she has traveled, studied and worked abroad for about 20 years. During this time, she completed a PhD in social psychology at the Australian National University and worked for the Center for Restorative Justice at the same university. She has a particular interest in restorative justice and school violence, and has written the first international review of restorative justice in schools for the Handbook of Restorative Justice. In Australia she worked on the development of the National Safe School Framework. Internationally, she is on the scientific committee of the International Observatory of Violence in Schools. For three years, she worked on secondment to the University of Pennsylvania, working on research and development projects at the intersection of courts and schools in Philadelphia. Brenda is happily settling into life on the North Shore again with her husband Damien and two children, Hamish and Anna.
