Restorative Justice Week

International Restorative Justice Week 2021 commenced with the 3rd Restorative Justice Council Annual Conference delivered over 2 days.  The theme of this year’s conference was Restorative Networks: bridging divides and strengthening communities.  It was lovely to see so many of our Facilitators in attendance.  Wearing her RJC Trustee hat, our very own Janet delivered a session on Secondary Trauma, a complex topic that we often discuss in our day to day work and plan to explore further at a future Group Supervision session.

Following the RJC conference, the RJ Team commenced their own RJ Week event, delivering Induction and Skills Practice Training.  The 2-day training was for practitioners who had trained externally and want to work with Calm Mediation.  The group were fantastic and gave us some great feedback on the sessions:
