The Centre for Restorative Justice provides a vast range of training options to support your business, school or organisation with the tools to navigate Restorative Justice measures internally.
These services include Professional Development for the workplace, facilitating Restorative Conferences and hosting information sessions for groups to learn more about the process and need of Restorative Justice.
Restorative approaches work best when they are fully embraced by the community of concern or an organisation, whether it be a community group, a school, a university, an NGO, a commercial business or the criminal justice system.
CRJ can assist groups implement a process of developmental change that reframes the way in which people interact, and which helps solve problems restoratively. This can be through policy change, human resource practice improvements and communication. CRJ works with the leadership and the whole organisation to achieve improved outcomes and create more harmonious workplaces. These outcomes include reduced staff conflict, improved relationships, reduced time away from work, and most importantly increased employee satisfaction and productivity.
