JS 0523 - Restorative Justice


3 Credit Hours
Restorative practices are designed to repair harm, increase empathy and accountability on behalf of the wrong-doer, and restore, to the extent possible, the emotional and material losses of the harmed parties by providing a range of opportunities for dialogue, negotiation and problem-solving. This course provides an introduction and exposure to the principles of restorative practices and their application. This course will explore the needs and roles of key stakeholders to the conflict and examine the values and assumptions of the restorative practices’ movement, including its spiritual and religious roots, and introduce students to some of the current programs at community, state and national levels. This class is designed to build skills in knowledge, analysis, critical thinking, communication, and implementation of restorative practices and principles. Prerequisites: Junior level standing, a 3.2 GPA, and permission of the instructor.
