Restorative Justice Peacemaking Circle Training

For:

PEACEMAKING CIRCLES are an effective process used in many agencies and schools around the country. They provide an opportunity for youth and adults to come together in a safe and supportive way. This process improves communication skills, teaches new ways to solve conflicts, improves relationships, and is an effective way to celebrate achievements. The key to developing a peaceful environment is to build community.

Using a Circle is an effective tool for learning about one another and building trust.

RESTORATIVE JUSTICE is a process whereby all parties with a stake in a particular situation come together to collectively decide how to deal with it.

Participants will be involved in experiential learning. Each will practice what they have learned by leading a circle. They will be enabled to start using this process immediately. Dress casually and be prepared to have fun!
