Restorative Justice Practices
Learn Restorative Justice Practices!
Would you like to learn how to create a happier, more cooperative and just classroom, family, workplace, or association and respond restoratively when harm occurs?
Then the Restorative Justice Practices Workshop is for you!
Restorative Justice (RJ) Practices are a way of thinking about and responding to those whom have been harmed by conflict and wrongdoing, and about those who have harmed others.
Participants Will Learn...
How to use RJ as a prevention process (Circles) for group/team-building, to establish group behavioral expectations, general discussions on challenging topics in order to gain a shared understanding, (examples may include conflict, ways to enhance our effectiveness, etc.), to encourage problem-solving for group conflict situations, and provide support for those that have been victimized.
How to use RJ as an intervention process  (Conferences) that focuses on the harm and is victim-centered and encourages personal accountability from the offender.
