Bring together those impacted to resolve conflict

Incidents of conflict, wrongdoing and harm occur throughout society — in schools, workplaces, college campuses, neighborhoods and families. The restorative justice conference provides a template to engage with those who cause and experience harm, along with related community.

All kinds of incidents, from arguments to bullying, racial incidents to property crimes and violence can be addressed in this format. During this event, you will learn the steps needed to facilitate these meaningful, healing conversations.

Whether or not you are responsible for conducting restorative justice conferences, the insights gained will help you address conflicts in everyday settings. The elements of the conference can be broken out to inform less formal processes — including restorative circles, small impromptu conversations and one-on-one interactions. Skills taught include monitoring your own reactions in stressful situations, listening with empathy and creating shared understanding among conflicting parties.

Learning Format

This online experience — tailored for teachers, administrators and other school staff — is led by an experienced IIRP instructor:

  • On two successive days, you will participate in 4.5-hour live Zoom sessions (breaks included).
  • Prework includes readings, handouts, videos and other resources. There will be approximately two hours of prework for each day of synchronous instruction.

This event addresses topics that are also covered in the last two days of our in-person Basic Restorative Practices event: Facilitating Restorative Conferences, and it satisfies the prerequisite for certain graduate courses and professional development, including Become a Restorative Practices Trainer.
