Restoring Community

Find realistic solutions to your greatest challenges

IIRP professional development will provide you with practical skills that you can use immediately in your personal and professional life, whether you work in restorative justice, schools, social services, counseling, leadership, the pastoral field or as a volunteer.

Professional development experiences can stand alone, but they are also modules in a larger framework that build toward a comprehensive understanding of restorative practices.

Professional development events, symposia and conferences can be a part of your graduate education as part of the IIRP's unique hybrid learning model. With the addition of readings and interactive online coursework, you can delve deeper with our faculty and participate in our graduate level curriculum.
