  5. Restorative Justice – Guiding Principles for Communities and Organizations

    March 25, 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM @ Holiday Inn and Suites Chicago-Downtown

    How do we respond meaningfully to harmful or criminal actions? Based on the principles of restorative justice, this workshop offers a framework for answering this question as it relates to your own context. The timeless philosophy of restorative justice invites people to look beyond a merely punitive view of justice and discipline. Instead, there is a focus on the needs of everyone involved, emphasizing direct accountability, reparation, prevention, dialogue and, in some cases, renewed relationship. If you work in a community, school, government or other organizational setting and make decisions about how to respond to harmful actions, this workshop will provide you with insights for incorporating restorative justice principles into your environment. This training is offered in partnership with the Fraser Region Community Justice Initiatives. ** This is an introductory-intermediate level workshop intended for anyone wishing to learn more about the principals of restorative justice.
