RESTORATIVE JUSTICE &

RESTORATIVE PRACTICES

Choose one of these 2-day trainings, or plan to attend for all 4 days. If you have no experience with RJ, start with our introductory training. If you've already experienced training in Restorative Practices (Tier I) sign up for our Advanced Workshop.

August 5-6

Introduction to Restorative Justice and Community Building in

Schools, Workplaces, and Organizations 

In this two-day workshop, participants will be introduced to principles and processes of restorative justice and restorative practice, and develop skills in facilitating circles and restorative conversations. Our expert practitioners will guide the group through circle practices for prevention and response for everyday harms that occur in workplaces, organizations, K-12 and college campuses, such as racial and gendered micro-aggressions. Participants will gain perspective on their own identities as facilitators, and identify strategies for building communities of supportive accountability and care. 

August 7-8

Advanced Training in Restorative Justice and Practice

In this intensive two-day 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, or work spaces.
