"Mending the harm through bridge-building dialogue"
Behind all crimes are real people who commit them and real people who are affected by them; restorative justice seeks to put the face back on the crime. Victim/offender mediation is just one of many restorative models that help offenders to have a greater learning experience so that they can take greater responsibility for their actions. At the same time, the needs of victims are taken seriously, and victims are given a significant voice in resolution processes. This model is also useful in cases of low- or high-level harm in schools and other social contexts.
Who Should Attend
All people are invited to take this training, either to learn more about restorative justice or to become volunteer mediators and community members who assist meetings with victims and offenders. Professionals in justice, social work and school agencies that might refer cases, or who seek an understanding about how to integrate restorative practices in their own work, are strongly encouraged to attend.
