Customized Workshops and Trainings:
RPIC’s seasoned trainers and curricula authors design and facilitate workshop/training modules based on a community group or organization’s specific needs and area of skills improvement. Through our fee-for-service programming, our trainers can customize an immersion into restorative community circles, restorative justice modalities, conflict resolution tools, and general implementation of Restorative Practices for the interested organization.
For inquiries about individualized organizational training, please contact our Program Director, Vanessa M. Petti: 562.435.8184; firstname.lastname@example.org
RPIC Annual Trainings:
CCEJ trains community members to incorporate restorative practices in their individual lives, families, places of work and communities at-large. Through our annual trainings, community members can become certified to volunteer with RPIC programming (restorative justice case referrals and/or facilitate organizational workshops)
“Healing Harms” Restorative Justice, Circle Keeper Volunteer Training (45 hours): This annual 45-hour training prepares community members to co-facilitate circles for our restorative justice case referral program. This requires a multi-part training arc. Participants develop and learn the skills necessary to be a circle keeper for cases diverted from police departments, courts and juvenile justice related systems.
Through this training, you will deepen your understanding of restorative justice philosophy and your practical experience co-facilitating restorative circles for our diversion programs. You will explore tools to create a space for families and community to come together and collectively determine meaningful healing steps when harm or conflict occurs. Upon completion of our training, volunteers have the opportunity to co-facilitate community mediation sessions and/or restorative justice circles for our RPIC Case Referral Program.
We require a one year commitment from Healing Harms volunteers. *No volunteer commitment is necessary to join Part A, “Intro to Restorative Justice.”
