Kevin Jones was ready to retire from a distinguished career working with youth when he discovered restorative practices and the IIRP. Re-energized to continue working, he dove into graduate education without knowing where it would take him. In this discussion with IIRP Provost Craig Adamson, Ph.D., Kevin will share his journey of how the graduate school helped him engage in a brand new facet of a long and varied career. Attendees will be invited to participate in a question and answer session following the discussion.
