The Restorative Conferencing Training will provide an overview of the values and principles of the restorative philosophy, as well as an opportunity for the participants to experience the circle and conferencing processes.

Restorative practices make space for dialogue, sharing and exploring how the participants in an incident, conflict or dispute may come together to discuss what happened, how it impacted all involved and determine how to move forward in a respectful, responsible and peaceful manner.

The participants will gain a better understanding and appreciation if the restorative approach and practices so that they may apply these processes to encourage accountability, build community, strengthen relationships and increase community safety.

Participants are asked to RSVP by Monday, June 13, to Arica Barton at 847-866-5017.
