Restorative Justice Skills Course

About this Project

Restoring Wholeness in Broken Relationships

A society's ability to resolve wrongdoings is critical to people’s perceived sense of security, belonging and justice. As such, the state’s formal legal system plays an important role in establishing the rule of law and in maintaining popular confidence in its ability to manage transgressions. However, in many parts of the world as is the case in the U.S., the legal justice system is not always designed to adequately contribute to healing or peace but instead can deepen societal divides and conflict.

Restorative justice tries to address some of these gaps. During this course graduate students gained an introductory knowledge of advanced communication skills to facilitate restorative dialogues between victims, offenders and affected community members.
