Restorative Justice is an approach that helps survivors (direct or indirect) and offenders that have experienced and caused harm to find a path forward. For over 20 years, I have worked with offenders and survivors of violent crime to process their experiences – feel it, own it, and find a way forward. I have found that a key part of the process is helping the participants see the humanity in themselves and each other. I run restorative justice process groups in prisons, in jails, and with probationers. I also work one-on-one with survivors as well as conduct and have conducted trainings for schools, inmates, and community members (in English & Spanish). Trauma, loss, pain and self-medication are common themes that we discuss and process on a regular basis.
