Victim Offender Training

The Restorative Justice Mediation Program (RJMP) offers crime victims and juvenile and adult offenders an effective alternative to the traditional criminal justice system. RJMP offers its services to probation, the police, the courts, and other service agencies, providing offenders a chance to take responsibility and make amends as well as giving the victim a voice and an opportunity to ask questions and to describe the effects of the offense.

The process begins the healing for the victim, the offender, and the community.

Victim-Offender dialogue facilitation differs from traditional mediation. It requires offenders to take responsibility for the harm they have done victims. It helps to provide equitable restitution to the victim, and is proven to reduce the probability that an offender will re-offend.

This training is intended for all persons interested in becoming RJMP facilitators, but will benefit school teachers, defense attorneys, and everyone in between–and especially those involved with children, teenagers and young adults. Trainees who agree to facilitate cases with RJMP will receive valuable experience in conflict resolution and transferable skills to all walks of life.

Victim Offender Training will be offered April 6-8 on the following schedule: Thursday, 6-9 p.m., Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 5 p.m., Saturday, 8:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. The course includes 20 hours of basic Victim-Offender Mediation/ Dialogue Training using lectures, videos, and role-playing.

Instruction, training manual, and lunches will be provided. Cost is $200 per person, or $75 for students with current school ID and people over age 65.
