Five Days (40 Credit Hours)
This course provides an overview of restorative justice as an inclusive, respectful, accountable and voluntary way of addressing harm that occurs from a specific offense.
It will describe the various ways in which restorative practices can transform your world by bringing people together to connect and, in a deeply meaningful way, solve problems and address harm that arises from conflict.
The broad application of restorative practices to the work place, communities, faith groups, schools and families will be addressed with particular emphasis on the use of both proactive and responsive circles, among other approaches.
There will be opportunities for you to learn theory, process, to develop skills and to practice within a variety of scenarios. You will also be learning and role-playing Peacemaking Circles.
