Community Building using Restorative Justice philosophy, principles and practices – No training currently scheduled

You are invited to this 2-day training to learn about Restorative Justice and Peacemaking Circle Practices that you can use in communities including in schools and classrooms.

You are invited to this 2-day training to learn about Restorative Justice (RJ) and Peacemaking Circle Practices that you can use in communities, including schools and in classrooms. Restorative Justice is a philosophy, a set of principles and practices that builds community, intervenes with wrongdoing and holds space for re-integration when students are suspended or returning from juvenile detention. RJ helps us understand and respond to conflict. RJ is founded upon and depends on personal and community values, and commitment. Community building occurs upon this foundation.

The theory and practices of restorative justice emphasize the importance of engaging in dialogue among all those involved in a wrongdoing. People involved in an incident identify the harm, understand how their behavior impacts others, understand their obligation to take responsibility for their actions, take steps to repair the relationships that we harmed and address the underlying causes of the harm and make a promise for future behavior. RJ then coaches school communities to reintegrate people who have been involved in wrongdoing, back into the school community as active contributors to a positive relational culture at schools.

Repairing Relationships using RJ Practices – No training currently scheduled

This three-day training builds on the RJ & Community Building training (see above) and helps participants understand and learn the paradigm shift from punishment to as close to restoration or transformation as possible. It is vital that participants engage with their own beliefs about the role of punitive and reparative responses to wrongdoing such as breaking rules and laws. The stories that we encounter through RJ practices are varied and by using ourselves as master learners and teachers, we search both within, with each other and system for the answers of how to move this practice forward and toward restorative outcomes

Participants will begin the process to develop the skills needed to facilitate RJ practices that repair and rebuild relationships that have been harmed. The RJ practices inform how to hold space for Conflict in the organization, classroom and school. We will also discuss how to re-enter and re-integrate students after they have been excluded from the class and/or school.
