Workshop Description

A restorative justice approach works to repair harm and strengthen communities where wrong has occurred. It seeks to meet the needs of those harmed, while also considering the causes of the wrongful behavior in order to promote accountability and growth for the one who caused harm. This highly experiential workshop utilizes a trauma-informed approach, and provides frameworks for identifying and responding to the needs of all those who were impacted by the wrong. Participants will be trained in the philosophy of restorative justice and will learn the foundational skills for facilitating encounters that lead to restorative outcomes.

Some of the topics included:

  • Philosophy and Values of Restorative Justice
  • Trauma and Restorative Justice
  • Starting with a Needs-Based Approach
  • The Role of Accountability and Repair
  • Process Options
  • Assessing What Process to Use
  • How to Prepare People to Meet
  • Key Facilitation Approaches and Skills

Target Audience

This is an intermediate level workshop intended for anyone wishing to learn more about the principles of restorative justice and how to facilitate restorative encounters.
