Restorative and Racial Justice Stewardship [Friday]

Healing and Reconciliation Trainer Certification [Saturday]

Join STRONG HOLD and the Healing and Reconciliation Institute for a 16-hour training at the Mandell Gisnet Center for Conflict Management at the Monterey College of Law, our co-sponsor.

Attendees who complete the entire 16-hour program will receive a Certificate of Completion.

This training is also open to students at the Monterey College of Law as a 1 credit course. (Law students do not register here. Register through the Monterey College of Law.)

Friday: Restorative Justice practice

Restorative justice is not just a theory or a model -- it is a culture.

STRONGHOLD co-directors, Karena H. Montag, MFT & Claire Whitmer, will explore how we can turn theory into practice, embodiment, and culture.

Together we will unpack the difference between restorative and punitive justice, examine the ways punitive justice shapes our lives, and imagine how applying a restorative justice stance can shift the culture of the systems and communities in which we live.

Our exploration will include particular attention to the role of power and privilege, and to the intersection between racial identity, harm and accountability.

We will center the wisdom of our own lived experiences and bodies in this day of experiential learning.

Saturday: Healing and Reconciliation as a conflict resolution model

Sometimes we find ourselves in present day challenges or conflicts, where the professional or life skills we have access to do don’t feel adequate in resolving the issue.

The healing and reconciliation framework provides attendees with a set of tools to address the deeper, historical context of the present day challenge or conflict, especially in culturally or ethnically diverse spaces. Attendees to our trainings are community leaders, students, members of non-profit organizations, executives and entrepreneurs, and board members. Attendees will receive a PDF workbook with handouts and exercises.

This workshop is highly interactive and will include multiple small group work, individual exercises, and role plays. In addition, attendees who so choose will have opportunities to practice facilitating certain exercises.

Topics:

1. Intro- the braid of the integrated self- an approach to leadership and conflict resolution

2. Reconciliation as community forgiveness

3. Apologies through actions- a new definition in the context of reconciliation

4. How does neuroscience impact healing and conflict resolution?

5. Epigenetics and its applicability to perceived conflict

6. Inherited identity and inherited institutions

7. Your toolbox for the reconciliation framework

8. A five year vision for transforming yourself and your community/organization

Pricing will be tiered as follows:

Our sponsoring organizations are committed to diversity, inclusion and access to justice for all.

BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) are encouraged to register. Financial need-based partial-tuition waivers are available.

Why are there two different prices?: We acknowledge and honor that access to resources is a result of institutionalized bias and intergenerational harms. A tiered fee structure allows folks to leverage the privilege they have gained through those systems by supporting an equitable point of access for those who have been disenfranchised by the same systems. Our facilitators will lead participants in a discussion about the topic of reparations, and how inequities in distribution of resources are addressed in the present day.

What if I can't pay the full price?: We have a tuition-waiver program and are committed to making our trainings totally accessible to ensure we have a strong diversity of perspectives, cultures and nations. Please let us know what you need in order to be able to attend and we will work with you to arrange a tuition waiver.

What if I can pay more than my tiered price point?: GREAT! Any amount paid over the base fee will go directly into our tuition-waiver fund to allow access for a diversity of participants. we welcome and encourage you to offer more if you have the resources.

We look forward to learning in community with you!
