Dear Students,
Join the Counseling Program as we discuss the application of a Restorative Justice framework in a school setting with Taeko Onishi ( the principal of the Lyons Community School)— http://www.lyonscommunityschool.org<http://www.lyonscommunityschool.org/>) and her colleagues and students.

RESTORATIVE JUSTICE is a theory of justice that emphasizes repairing the harm caused or revealed by criminal behavior. It is best accomplished through cooperative processes that include all stakeholders.

Practices and programs reflecting restorative purposes will respond to crime by:

  1.  identifying and taking steps to repair harm,
  2.  involving all  stakeholders, and
  3.  transforming the traditional relationship between communities and their governments in responding to crime.

All our welcome, as we:

  *   Consider the role of Restorative Justice in Education and Counseling.
  *   Explore Restorative Justice Practices and related outcomes for students.
  *   Engage a Restorative Justice experiential exercise.
  *   Discuss the  challenges to implementation.
  *   Discuss the benefits of training as a educational and counseling professional in this context.

*School Counseling students with an interest in training within this model at the Lyons Community School are especially encouraged to attend. *
