The 11th World Conference of the International Institute for Restorative Practices
October 20 - 21, 2008
Come to Toronto in October 2008, and join with others who share a passion and commitment to restorative practices.
This interdisciplinary conference will provide an international perspective on restorative practices theory and practice in a variety of settings, from education to social welfare to criminal justice. Restorative practitioners from around the world are coming to share their knowledge and achievements and to find encouragement, support and advice from others doing similar work.
The whole continuum of restorative practices will be discussed, including family group decision making and family group conferencing, restorative conferencing and circles, and restorative cautions and reprimands. All of these practices share the same underlying purpose: to build community, more effectively address wrongdoing and conflict, and empower people to make decisions about issues that affect them.
