Restorative Engagement Therapy
 infuses principles of social justice with scientific perspectives to gain a multi-layered understanding of the human condition. Scientifically speaking, the growth and development of any living thing is significantly influenced by environmental factors. This truth also applies to the development of the human mind and soul. Restorative Engagement Therapy explores this relationship between environment-and-development through a broad spectrum of perspectives ranging from the personal to the socio-political.

During any period of development, when a human being is exposed to environmental conditions which are denigrating or devaluing or marginalizing, a concept-of-self begins to crystallize around an incomplete "single story" of worthlessness, fallibility, deficiency, susceptibility and powerlessness. Restorative Engagement Therapy dismantles this crystallized self-concept by exploring the historical conditions which shaped the "single story," and instead promotes a restorative testimonial of the client's resiliency, determination and emergent heroism.   

The aims of Restorative Engagement Therapy are:
  1. Restore client's capacity for healthy interpersonal relationships.
  2. Restore the self-regulatory capacity of clients' neural circuitry.
  3. Rightfully restore clients' life experiences into a proper historical context of resiliency.
  4. Restore clients to their dignified-selves by addressing the moral injuries that underlie traumatic experiences.​​​​​​​

Developed by Lance Tango, Restorative Engagement Therapy infuses principles of social justice with traditional forms of therapy; restoring self-assuredness, human connection, dignity and soulfulness.  Restorative Engagement Therapy cultivates these changes by engaging both cognitive (rational) and affective (emotional) structures of the mind - restoring the soul's capacity for self-affirming ​perception and interoception (internal emotional sensations).
