ADVANCED RJ for SCHOOLS

& WORKPLACES

In this intensive workshop, participants will gain experience in responding to serious conflict and harm using trauma-informed restorative conferencing and harm circles. RJ professionals will share their real-world experience and strategies for implementing RJ at the level of policy and practice, including scaffolded trainings for colleagues and peers. People who complete this training will be prepared to start the process of developing and implementing basic RJ practice in their communities, organizations, work spaces, or schools.

Note: in response to social distancing guidelines, we will hold this training online, in 2-hour sessions over  a 4-day period. To make the most of the experience, participants will prepare for the training by completing several readings and watching short films, and will be asked to complete homework between sessions.
