What is Restorative Justice?

Restorative Justice is an approach that focuses on addressing  and repairing the harm caused by crime while holding the offender responsible for their actions rather than focusing upon which law was broken and what punishment is required as a consequence.  It addresses both the causes and the consequences – personal, relational and societal – of offending in ways that promote accountability, healing and justice. 

What are Restorative Practices? 

Restorative Practices are structured process for organizing effective communication between individuals or groups, relationship building, decision-making, and conflict resolution.  Restorative practices are used in any number of contexts, settings or situations. 

Join us for this presentation presented by Dianna Bennett, Director of A Better Way Restorative Consulting which provides restorative justice case resolution, restorative practice training and contract consulting for restorative practice program development.  This event is sponsored by the Alberta Elder Abuse Awareness Council.
