This dynamic, 24-hour Restorative Justice (RJ) course is for those who interested in supporting restorative practices within the criminal justice system, government, schools and other community organizations rather than using punitive processes to address breech of statues, regulatons, rules and policies. The training focuses on strategies that invite all stakeholders to restore relationships by creating and implementing effective solutions for changed behavior when there has been harm.

Here are comments of RJ students:                            

“Amazing training…I gained both personal and business perspectives…used all 5 learning techniques that helped me to take in all the information.” (Margaret Aranda, Juvenile Assessor)

“The role playing and watching Jan and Monica model how they would word questions or comments really helped. Also, the videos were well-chosen and very instructive. This was also very healing to me and I am deeply grateful for the caring listening and framing my concern to nudge me to my next step in addressing conflict.” Debra Lacey, Behavior Interventionist
