Forgiveness whilst not the primary objective of restorative justice, often occurs during the process. Victims often appear moved to forgiveness when they fully understand the offenders’ position and dispel the stereotypical notions and fears victims often possess regarding the offender. “Forgiveness” as a part of restorative justice is versatile and it requires the victim and offender to be emotionally available to each other. It has also been accepted that many victims choose to forgive because granting forgiveness is congruent with their personal or religious beliefs.

The judges, prosecutors or any mediator take into account the behavior of the offender. If the offender behaves in a positive manner his punishment is likely to get reduced or dismissed. A positive behavior accounts to the recognition of harm suffered by the victim and further an attempt to “repair” all the damages suffered by the victim. This mediation takes place before a formal punishment is given out to the offender. 1.2 What are the advantages of Victim Offender Mediation for the victim?

Though there are core principles and guidelines, the way each case is handled is heavily based on context. The main objectives that drive restorative justice practices in sexual violence cases are “reparation, retribution, and rehabilitation of the community” (Wolthuis et al., 2015). Restorative justice seeks to find a way that “maximizes healing for all parties and minimizes the chance of the process inadvertently causing harm” (Restorative justice standards for sexual offending cases, 2013). Particularly in sexual violence cases, the primary focus in a restorative justice case is to lower the potential chances of harm. The principles are set in place to allow the victim to have a chance to hold the offender accountable while having the opportunity to voice one's story.

1515), however clinicians usually choose one method over the other as oppose to combining these two exceedingly effective methods of treatment.

The ultimate goal of CBT is for the clients to appropriately and regularly assess themselves in order to regulate undesirable behavior. Together, they adequately address the unconscious and conscious mind. These rehabilitations balance one another out by relieving symptoms early on through EMDR and providing groundwork for consistency through
The traditional goals of sentencing are retribution, deterrence, incapacitation and rehabilitation (Stinchcomb, 2011). A more contemporary goal of criminal sanctions is restorative and community justice (Stinchcomb, 2011). Retribution is founded on the principle that offenders should receive their ‘just desserts’.
