About this Event

Introduction to Restorative Justice for Community Healing and Transformation

2 hour (Intro to RJ) online training

Ruptured relationships create psychological trauma, conflict, and violence. Restorative Justice allows for truth-telling and repairing harm for healed just relationships setting the stage for the possibility of reconciliation. Creating healed just relationships is violence prevention. Restorative justice prevents violence and builds peace into our lives and communities.

We are grateful to the Minneapolis Foundation for partially funding this restorative justice training for those who live, work, and/or play in Minneapolis.

Training Facilitators:

Donna Minter, PhD, LP, Certified STAR Trainer, USA and International Experience Neuropsychologist, Clinical Psychologist, and Forensic Psychology Examiner, Founder and Executive Director, Minnesota Peacebuilding Leadership Institute

Crixell Shell, MS, Certified STAR Trainer, Assistant Executive Director, Coming to the Table Racial Healing Talking Circles Facilitator, Rule 114 Community Mediator

Training objectives:

1. Learn the basic Restorative Justice philosophy, principles, and practices.

2. Learn the differences between Restorative Justice and other types of justice.

3. Discuss how to apply Restorative Justice concepts through a trauma-informed lens for community healing and transformation.

Restorative Justice philosophy and principles have been practiced by Indigenous communities to address conflict and prevent violence since ancient times. Since the 1970’s Restorative Justice has been utilized as an alternative to the traditional retributive approach within western and colonized criminal legal systems. After the tragic events of September 11, 2001, Restorative Justice philosophy, principles, and practices were utilized as the foundation of an inclusive trauma-informed and resilience-oriented model to address individual and collective psychological trauma for truth-telling and repairing harm for healed, just relationships toward the possibility of reconciliation in the USA and internationally.
