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 Eugenia Highland.
The Restorative Justice program is embedded in Racial Equity Justice. Through experiential and practical activities participants will ground the work and the philosophy using a racial justice lens.
Empathy has been used as a determinant for virtuous behavior, which is why there is a broad and ever-growing body of research surrounding this topic. In this experiential workshop, we will experience and practice circle process as a natural empathy and resilience cultivator.
In this workshop, we will explore and engage in dialogue around the framework of Restorative Justice in Education (Evans & Vaandering). Within this framework, Restorative Justice is deeply connected to teaching and learning theory, as well as to school climate and culture. We will explore how RJE can be implemented in the institutional structure of a school through its three components: Nurture healthy relationships, create just and equitable learning environments, and repair harm and transform conflict.
This level is offered when the focus of the Restorative Justice training is on applying restorative practices in the school setting.
All sessions focusing on restorative justice practices that are applicable to multiple community settings will be held at the YWCA Empowerment Center, located at 2040 South Park Street. Purchased individually, each workshop is $125. Attend both levels and save $50.
