Restorative Justice- Making It Work

Sign Up For The Waitlist 

5:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.


$200 - Tuition

In order to make Restorative Justice work, we are going to have to step beyond many of the habits of our day. 

This is no easy or routine task. If there is no judge, we may ask, no prosecution or defense, how are we to deal with law breaking? If misbehaving students are not to be suspended by the Assistant Principal, how are we to handle them? 

The idea of doing away with professionals in most cases and instead handling misbehavior ourselves, in cooperation with those responsible for harm, all as members of the same community, seems far fetched at first. 

Yet indigenous populations (Native Americans, Australian aborigines, etc.) have for centuries gotten along without jails. And restorative practices originating in their approaches are more and more proving themselves, today, in our own world as well.

This fifteen week course offers both a theoretical and a practical introduction to restorative practices with an emphasis on preparation for actual service as volunteers on discipline and/or support circles in our own schools and community. Beyond readings, video presentations, and class discussion, it will follow the lead of other successful training models to rely heavily on “role play” exercises in helping students build the experience with Restorative Justice that will be required if we areto move beyond the grip of habit in thought and practice.
