RESTORATIVE JUSTICE TRAININGS
for YSBs, JRB Members, and Stakeholders
 
RESTORATIVE JUSTICE 101
In this presentation, 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.

RESTORATIVE JUSTICE 201
Expanding on the learning from our RJ101, this more advanced workshop will help participants in learning the skills that support restorative justice.  We will learn and experience specific communication skills and the use of circle process, and how these practices interact with the adolescent brain. We will discuss specific strategies to bring this work to the Juvenile Review Boards.

ADVANCED RESTORATIVE JUSTICE (two day)
for JRB Chairs/Leaders only
(one per agency)
In this two-day workshop, we will bring together the theory and research from RJ101 and skill building in RJ102 and bring them directly into our JRB process' of intake, panel sessions, and contract development.  We will dive deeper into deliberate practice of the skills and processes that will support our work with youth in restorative and trauma-informed ways with a goal of giving you the skills as a JRB leader to bring this work back into your community.
 
The trainings are free, space is limited
