Restorative Justice Workshops

A- A A+

YWCA Madison offers three-day professional development training workshops for educators, community members and parents. Restorative Justice staff presented the first training in August 2015. To register for the Restorative Justice Workshops, be notified about future workshop dates or if you have additional questions, please email Orion Wells.

During our intensive three days Restorative Justice Training Series, we will learn and unlearn many things including:

  • Level 100 – Restorative Justice Philosophy, roots, and the experiential Circle Process: YWCA experiential holistic framework, Experiential Circle Process and its different elements, Restorative Justice as a way of restoring our shared values. Mindfulness as a restorative liberatory anti-racist practice.
  • Level 200 – Restorative Justice as a Way to Dismantle Institutional Racism and the school to prison pipeline: Culture, Power, timeline, and history of years of inequality, freedom and abolitionist dreaming. Understanding the Cycle of harm, how to disrupt it and build a culture of belonging and healing. 
  • Level 300 – Restorative and Transformative Justice is an abolitionist Movement: What is Restorative and Transformative justice? What does RJ in practice look like? We will also engage in learning about different universal restorative justice practices with a healing-centered engagement as a way to build healthy relationships, create just and equitable environments, and transform and repair conflict.
