RESTORATIVE JUSTICE TRAININGS
for those who work in diversion, or with youth
RESTORATIVE JUSTICE 101
Monday, April 4, 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
Online via zoom
In this webinar, we will deconstruct the juvenile justice system (why and how it is often harmful), and how we then replicate many of its elements in our diversion processes. We will also see how Restorative Justice speaks to the failures of our justice system and allows us to operate in a way that is consistent with research about how the developing minds of young people work. We will also explore how trauma interrupts development and impacts children's behavior.  This workshop will give participants a deeper understanding of what restorative justice is and how it differs from our traditional systems while still getting the outcomes we want.  Space is limited.
