Conferencing for Serious Offences: An Exploration
5 DVDs (DVD-R) plus 1 CD-ROM
(includes Facing the Demons in separate package)
Produced by Real Justice and the IIRP
This thought-provoking, interactive, “do-it-yourself” seminar package provides DVD videos (and a CD-ROM with printable Facilitator Guide and Participant Handout) for a group of professionals, students or others to examine the use of restorative conferencing in response to serious offenses.
The seminar package provides detailed directions for using the videos. Also included are instructions on how to run a “circle,” which is the format used to structure discussion in the seminar. The use of the circle process provides a truly restorative experience that encourages active participation from everyone attending the seminar.
Please note: This seminar is not intended to train participants to facilitate restorative conferences, but to enhance their understanding of the potential and the implications of conferencing for serious offenses.
