1. REAL JUSTICE (Ted Wachtel)
The founder of the Real Justice movement uses actual conference stories to show how conferencing works and how it can change the way our society responds to wrongdoing in schools, criminal justice, the workplace and elsewhere. He demonstrates how conferencing benefits victims, offenders and the community by actively involving those affected by wrongdoing in the process of repairing the harm and by fostering the closure and the emotional healing which is largely denied in our current systems.
2. THE CONFERENCING HANDBOOK -
The official training manual provides a step-by-step guide to setting up and conducting conferences. It is useful to anyone who wants to learn to facilitate conferences in school, criminal justice and other settings. Included are samples of literature and forms from actual conferencing programs.
