3 Credits

(Fall, Spring)
Prerequisite(s): CRJU 201 & CRJU 329 This course introduces models of restorative practices used in criminal justice, community, and social services contexts. Drawing on the latest research, students will explore and critique specific restorative justice programs that currently exist as alternatives to traditional conviction and sentencing (e.g. meditation, conferencing, and circles). Students will discuss and systematically analyze the strengths and drawbacks of different programs. In addition, various approaches to implementing restorative principles as well as the challenges of creating and sustaining restorative environments, initiatives and resources to support communities in developing safer, healthier and sustainable relationships will be discussed.
