Who Should Attend?
The training can be used by those who work inside jails and prisons as part of the Restorative Justice Ministry. However, the skills can also be applied much more broadly than that.
Restorative Justice and Practices can be utilized by anyone who needs to address harm that has been done in relationships, whether those are within a family, a school, a professional environment, or another situation.
The training is appropriate for students in junior high and up, as well as for adults.
