Restorative Justice is a response to harmful incidents that seeks the direct inclusion of all involved in efforts to meaningfully address the harm and foster renewed relationships. Drawing on the work of the USA's and Canada's original restorative justice pioneers and best practices around the globe, this national training event will deliver the essential skills of convening harm-focused dialogue processes within community, organizational and educational settings. This is a highly interactive workshop where participants will practice and gain confidence in facilitating a model of dialogue that is participant driven, culturally sensitive and empowering for all involved.
