About the Event
Restorative Justice In Action or Restorative practices is a social science that studies how to improve and repair relationships between people and communities. The purpose is to build healthy communities, increase social capital, decrease crime and antisocial behavior, repair harm and restore relationships. Its applications will be visited in this series in the following fields: restorative justice processes (August 11th), relationship dynamics (August 18th), and cycles of violence (August 25th). Please register for each of these sessions independently, however we encourage everyone to attend the overview first (August 4th) as this will set the stage and manage expectations for the remaining sessions.
This session will focus on how trauma contributes to cycles of violence. Trauma and violence are widespread, harmful, and costly public health concerns. Objectives: 1) Awareness - raise awareness of trauma principles and restorative practices 2) Reflection - provide space for reflection and sharing of relational trauma 3) Inspiration - helping to identify unmet needs that when addressed can lead to healing
