Restorative Justice is a path to personal and societal healing. Based on the principles and values of restorative justice our trainings and consultancy work focuses on teaching communication skills, community development, facilitating difficult discussions, and training people in restorative ways to handle disciplinary issues, and respond to complaints and grievances.
All of our programs are based on four key features:
◾ Respect – for everyone by listening to other view points and learning to value them.
◾ Responsibility - taking responsibility for our actions.
◾ Repair – developing the skills to identify solutions that repair harm.
◾ Re-entry/ Reconciliation - working through a supportive collaborative processes to come to address needs and
obligations that have arisen from a harm that occurred.
