Restorative Justice VOD Training
Restorative Justice practices respond to crime by focusing on accountability, healing the harm and restoring those involved as functioning members of our communities. Victim Offender Dialogue is a restorative justice practice that provides a supportive setting for willing victims to get answers to questions directly from their offenders who are willing to accept responsibility for their conduct and try to make things right. Mediation skills are essential for VOD coordinators. There is an effort to train mediators in VOD throughout the state of Missouri.
