Introduction to Restorative Practice Seminar - London

Restorative justice is a process which enables communication between those harmed by an incident and the person responsible. It can be a powerful response to address harm caused. Our 3 hour seminar is an introduction to restorative practice, the principles and the benefits for participants.
