About this Training
When individuals commit an offense they harm their victims, society, and themselves. Restorative justice is about healing and addressing wrongs that have been committed and repairing the relationships in the community. This training will prepare participants to facilitate dialogues between someone who has committed an offense and the person/people impacted by that offense.
About Victim-Offender Dialogue
