IMPACT Justice – Restorative Practices Workshops

Impact Justice logo 1Bridgetown – September 30, 2016 – Some 59 Educators and Ministry of Education Officers will receive training in Restorative Practices in two workshops being sponsored by the Canadian Government funded Improved Access to Justice (IMPACT Justice) Project.

These workshops will take place in the Ixora Conference Room of the Bay Gardens Inn on October 4 –  5, and 6 – 7, 2016 respectively.

Professor Velma Newton, Regional Project Director of the IMPACT Justice Project will open the first workshop and the Honourable Dr. Gale T. Rigobert, Minister of Education of St. Lucia has also been invited to give remarks.

The provision of training in Restorative Practices falls under the Alternative Dispute Resolution component of the IMPACT Justice Project and is intended to expose educators to alternate methods of resolving disputes in schools, whether these disputes arise amongst students, students and teachers and even amongst teachers themselves. The objective of the training is to ultimately reduce the instances of violence and bullying in schools, improve behaviour, improve leadership, restore relationships and repair harm.

IMPACT Justice is sponsoring this workshop to expose educators to alternate methods of resolving disputes in schools with a view to reducing instances of violence and bullying, improving behavior, improving leadership and restoring relationships.

IMPACT Justice has facilitated similar training in several other CARICOM countries and the feedback has been positive.
