This chapter explores the question: What does healing justice require when a community member commits intra-family murder? The case study considered involves such a murder, and offers practical tools and strategies for a restorative justice response in the aftermath of severe violence. The case study takes place in British Columbia, and involves a victim-offender mediation program (a form of victim-offender dialogue). In Canada, the victim-offender mediation program is supported at the national level and stretches beyond existing restorative justice models in the United States. The case study provides social workers and restorative justice practitioners the opportunity to view what the book calls “deep trauma healing,” while learning lessons from Canada's experience.

Keywords:   victim-offender mediation program, victim-offender dialogue, First Nations, trauma healing, intra family murder, restorative justice
