Circle Training – Restorative Justice Practices for Working Together
Jul 17 @ 9:00 am – Jul 18 @ 4:00 pm

This two-day experiential training prepares participants to design and facilitate restorative circles in their workplace and communities. Participants will directly experience circles; understand the elements, philosophy, and rituals of circles; and practice both the planning and facilitation of circles. Circles are a structured form of a dialogue based on indigenous values and principles. Circles foster a sense of community based on mutual respect with broad application in many different contexts such as team building, collaborative problem-solving, or conflict transformation. This workshop will introduce the fundamental principles of restorative justice and prepare participants to use circles within their own lives in settings including workplaces, communities, organizations, universities, corrections, social services, families, and businesses.

PAYMENTS: Payments should be made prior to attending the training. For an invoice, please contact the Assistant Director.
