Full Circle Restorative Justice will offer its twice-annual Restorative Justice Facilitator Certification Course, March 9-11, 2018, at the Poncha Springs Town Hall Building, Address: 330 Burnett Ave, Poncha Springs, CO 81242
This training and certification is FREE to Chaffee and Fremont County Residents interested in volunteering as Community Members in Victim-Offender Dialogues. Participants can also continue their training beyond this initial course with FCRJ to become Co-Facilitators and Leads. In addition, Therapy Dog Teams are encouraged to take this training if there is interest in joining as a handler/dog team. Therapy Dog teams add a unique and powerful element to Victim-Offender dialogues.
In this training the participant will receive a significant overview of the history and principles of restorative justice, including the particulars regarding Colorado and the values of upholding Victims Rights, Offender Accountability, and Community Safety. Skills and practices that can be applied not only to a program working with Courts, Schools, and otherwise will be reviewed and put into practice in mock pre-conferences and circle processes, where participants will play out typical scenarios and come away with an understanding of what a restorative justice process is from intake to closure.
AN IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT THIS TRAINING:
We wanted to send out an important clarification in regards to our previous email announcements regarding our upcoming Facilitator Training. At the end of the previous email, it indicated that Restorative Justice Colorado (RJ Council) ensures all trainings meet best standards and practices. We wanted to clarify that the RJ Council is not a regulatory body and that the State Council/RJ Colorado are unable to ensure all RJ trainings in Colorado meet the standards of training and practice.
The RJ Council encourages the public to review the “Restorative Justice Facilitator Code of Conduct and Standards of Training and Practice” to understand the expectations of the field when selecting an RJ practitioner/program or RJ training. At FCRJ’s training, we include these materials in participant packets and review them in our curriculum.
We apologize for any confusion and look forward to seeing you in March!
Here are very helpful docs that our State Council has adopted, which support selection of trainings and implementation of facilitation practices:
We are honored to work in this fast-growing field and strive to offer optimal services in our communities, trainings, and partnerships.
