Event description

Description

This event is part of the Big Ideas at CIIS Series.

Restorative justice is an alternative approach to address violence and repair harm rooted in community solutions. These practices are used in schools, community groups, families, and along the entire continuum of the justice process to address historical harms as well as sexual and domestic violence. Restorative Justice is used by social workers, students, justice advocates, professors, therapists, school teachers, psychologists, community activists, and in every day interpersonal relationships worldwide.

CIIS Associate Professor Sonya Shah shares her 20 years of experience exploring the interpersonal, structural, social and historical causes of violence. Join Sonya to learn how the application of restorative justice processes can heal and transform our culture, and understand the intersection of restorative justice and sexual harm.

Sonya Shah has 20 years of experience in social justice education. She is an associate professor at CIIS, and a facilitator of restorative justice and trauma healing processes in family, community, university, and prison settings. She has trained hundreds of facilitators in trauma healing and restorative justice practices. She's currently facilitating groups for survivors of sexual harm and people who have committed sexual harm in an inaugural cohort of fellows and grantees with Justice Beginnings Collaborative called Project Ahimsa, which she started in 2015. Sonya speaks regularly at conferences. She has spoken on numerous local and national radio programs including NPR, and the BBC, and started a blog on Huffington Post.
