Karen Lischinsky

Adjunct Professor


Lischinsky brings years of experience in restorative justice practices in working with incarcerated men and women, law enforcement, formerly incarcerated and survivors of violent crime and engaging with them to heal from trauma in the process.

She also facilitates groups on issues related to domestic violence, racism, sexism, homophobias, and classism. Her work cultivates compassion for the self and for others through a self-reflective process that moves toward healing and accountability. Dr. Lischinsky founded the Transformational Prison Project ( TPP) in 2013 which embraces the principles and practices of restorative justice.

Lischinsky received her Ph.D in Sociology from Northeastern University and her MSW from Boston University.
