'Howard Zehr is considered “the grandfather of restorative justice.” Zehr describes about the four key components: “Apology may be difficult but the formula is quite simple: an apology requires us to 1. name and take responsibility for the harm, 2. acknowledge that it was wrong, 3. express our regret for our actions and their effects, and 4. seek to prevent such wrongs in the future.”

The restorative justice framework adds a fifth piece to an apology which involves seeking to repair harm to the extent it is possible.'
