Dates

Description

This interdisciplinary panel will describe the history and theory of the contemporary restorative justice (RJ) movement and how restorative approaches and practices have been applied at the community, university, and state levels. Restorative approaches have their origins in the middle eastern, southeast Asia and indigenous practices worldwide, that promote restorative rather than punitive responses to harm. Restorative practices engage those who have been impacted by harm in examining what happened, identifying who was affected, and deciding how to heal the harm as much as possible. Restorative systems aim to create inclusive community environments where all members are respected, and relationships are nurtured and maintained.

Major principles of restorative justice and restorative practices correlate with social work values and practice with individuals and communities. This event will encourage the discussion about the different ways social workers might seek training or become involved in restorative justice practices.
