Two-hour orientation for those interested in learning how to facilitate "Victims Awareness" workshops with incarcerated individuals. Learn how crime ripples well beyond a
criminal act, and learn of its harm-inflicting effects on all individuals involved, victims/survivors, families and the community.
The actual training sessions at UrbanMission -- July 12 and 19, 2016, from 9:30 am to 3:00 pm -- will provide participants with an opportunity to learn principles of restorative justice, and most importantly, to hear from people whose lives have been scarred by crime. Participants will be encouraged to find insights into themselves and their own need for support, rehabilitation and healing. THIS ORIENTATION IS REQUIRED for the July training days.
