HOW DO WE KNOW IT WORKS?
After every mediation, participants fill out an evaluation form. That is just one way we gather information to make sure we are doing the best we can for the people we serve. As you can see here, this is the kind of evaluation that makes us happy!
What Counts As “Restorative Practice”?
Thank you goes out to Phyllis Hildreth for leading our July Lunch & Learn. As both city officials and citizen groups increasingly look to "Restorative Practices" or "Restorative Justice" for help with conflict both in and out of the court system, it is crucial to understand what these terms encompass. Mediators, in particular, have skill sets that can be of great value across this spectrum. Phyllis shared her extraordinary knowledge and wisdom with a full room. It was clear that more opportunities for this kind of shared learning and collaborative planning are needed!
