RESTORATIVE JUSTICE IN ORGANIZATIONAL SETTINGS

Drawing on the work of Canada's original restorative justice pioneers and best practices around the globe, this course will deliver the essential skills of convening harm-focused dialogue processes within organizational and educational settings. This is a highly interactive workshop where participants will practice and gain confidence in facilitating a model of dialogue that is participant driven, culturally sensitive and empowering for all involved.  

By the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Clearly articulate the principles of restorative justice as contrasted with retributive justice.
  • Understand common needs experienced by people who have directly and indirectly suffered harm, and those who have caused harm.
  • Conduct initial and preparatory meetings with participants in restorative justice.
  • Articulate key strategies for managing power imbalances.
  • Understand and practice a process of facilitating an encounter between people involved in a harmful incident.

This is an introductory-intermediate level workshop intended for those interested in integrating restorative justice principles and practices within their school, business or other organizational context.  Previous training in interpersonal communication and/or group facilitation is an asset.  Course delivery includes lecture, discussion, skill development, video and facilitation practice.
