Death by Dangerous Driving – Overcoming my own barriers

 Registration is closed for this event
This online event will give you an opportunity to navigate the pitfalls and asks questions about any concerns you may have in preparing a participant for a sensitive and complex case both from the perspective of a victim and a practitioner.




Perspectives of a participant and practitioner

Working on sensitive and complex cases, where a death has occurred can be daunting for even the most experienced of practitioners. From a standards perspective sensitive and complex cases require additional skillset and preparation to help practitioners to create a ‘safe’ space to explore the appropriateness of restorative justice. Sometimes the fear of getting things wrong can create unconscious barriers and / or confidence issues.

During this event, Frances will share her restorative journey following the conviction of the driver responsible for killing Kate, her daughter, through death by dangerous driving. 

She will tell us Kate’s story and the impact her death had not only on her family but the community as a whole. You will also hear how restorative justice has contributed to their recovery and closure.

“We had never heard of Restorative Justice, but this has allowed us to gain a greater understanding of the circumstances and so helped contribute to the closure process.”

Frances will be hosting one of the breakout sessions, providing you the opportunity to ask questions about her experience of all stages of a restorative justice process.

A second breakout session will be hosted by the case practitioner from Make Amends, providing the opportunity for you to ask questions about process, case management decisions and how the RJC’s Sensitive and Complex case guidance was implemented.

To attend this online event you will need access to ZOOM. Event login details will be circulated prior to the meeting.
