    Abstract:
    Narrative aspires to moral justice, a justice in which hurts are acknowledged, offenders acknowledge the fault of their actions, and relationships are restored. The goal of narrative is ethical and spiritual relief, and the concern is with the victim, rather than the offender. By focusing on the victim, narrative is concerned with the harm experienced rather than the identification and punishment of the offender. It has the aim of restorative justice, healing the harm experience by the victim, rather than disciplining the offender in the interest of retribution or deterrence.
