restorative justice concept

How do we respond meaningfully to harmful or criminal actions? Based on the principles of restorative justice, this workshop offers a framework for answering this question in your own context. The philosophy of restorative justice invites people to look beyond a merely punitive view of justice and discipline. Instead, it focuses on the needs of everyone involved, emphasizing direct accountability, reparation, prevention, dialogue, and in some cases, renewed relationship.

Offered through ACHIEVE Centre for Leadership & Workplace Performance.

Unresolved conflict is time consuming and limits the productivity of everyone involved. Mediation is an essential skill for anyone who works in situations where they are responsible for helping others with interpersonal tension. When two people can’t resolve a conflict on their own, a third party may be needed to facilitate a conversation to help resolve the conflict.
