Course Description

Final Step:  Put Your Restorative Justice Leadership into Practice

This course is an opportunity to put theory and skills into practice. The focus is on implementing restorative practices through the development and delivery of restorative program or series of facilitated dialogues. Students will propose a program, deliver it, and write a final report summarizing their success. Experience with restorative facilitation is a core element of certification in restorative leadership (we can’t preach what we haven’t practiced).

This is the third of three required courses for the Restorative Justice Facilitation and Leadership Certificate, developed by the University of San Diego's Center for Restorative Justice, housed in the Leadership Studies Department in the School of Leadership and Education Sciences and facilitated by the Division of Professional and Continuing Education.  The certificate curriculum combines an academic understanding of restorative justice with experiential learning to ensure skillful facilitation, with the goal of building a new generation of restorative justice leaders.

Learner Outcomes

  • Understand the relationship between theory and practice of restorative justice
  • Apply various restorative practices in a community setting, especially circles and conferencing
  • Demonstrate competence in restorative process from pre-dialogue preparation to dialogue facilitation to post-dialogue mentoring and support
  • Assess effectiveness of restorative process, particularly through self-reflection
  • Support a community of practice for continued learning
