Florida Restorative Justice Association - Home Home About RJ Membership Contact Us What's Happening in Florida? Florida is seeing a growing number of restorative justice programs and activities around the state. ?Here are some highlights from our FRJA members: In this workshop, you will learn about: 1. Building a Restorative Community How do we identify and promote values in community that honor open dialogue, respect, trust, shared commitment, transparency, flexibility, and creativity? What does that look like in practice? We will explore how to grow a restorative community by developing a deep awareness of restorative approaches to relationship building and how these can be applied in various public and private settings. 2. Basic Restorative Dialogue Skills Restorative dialogue can take many forms, from affective questions and statements to full peacemaking circles to build relationships, address issues, and resolve conflicts. In this experiential workshop, you will learn and experience elements of restorative dialogue, peacemaking circles, and other restorative dialogue strategies to build community and resolve conflict. 3. Strategic Planning Strategies You will identify action steps for building your own restorative community. Families, neighborhoods, faith-based settings, workplaces, intentional communities, and other communities are all appropriate venues for using restorative strategies. You will develop an outline for a strategic action plan to bring back to your selected community setting. 4. The Setting In addition to time spent learning restorative skills and strategies, participants may also explore the grounds, including sacred temples, sustainable permaculture initiative, kayaking on the Sebastian River, a yoga class, and other activities in nature. Extraordinary vegetarian meals are provided, locally grown and organic whenever possible. Vegan options available. 5. Costs Cost: $295/ person for the workshop.

You can join this free summit, live via phone or webcast or listen to a recording, to learn practical examples and methods that can be brought into our schools to improve our children's lives, setting them up for success not just academically, but also relationally and emotionally. We will also explore what we can do collectively, and you can do specifically, to bring peace into our schools. Whether you are in the United States or anywhere on the globe, there will be valuable information for you. Why is this important? Schools are our main social vehicle for learning. While the primary focus of teaching in schools is predominantly on academic skills -- social, emotional and relational skills are equally important, and deserve FAR greater emphasis than they currently receive. We face conflict and sometimes violence at almost every stage and in every area of our lives. In fact, conflict that is not dealt with effectively can be one of the biggest detriments to success both in school and beyond. As a baseline for lasting success, focal areas in this summit include: Restorative Justice & Circle Practices Mindfulness Practices in Schools Social & Emotional Learning Skills and Nonviolent Communication. There are schools across the nation and world that find by implementing one or more of these practices, the climate of the school begins to significantly shift: Conflict and violence drop substantially Emotional well-being rises Bullying is reduced Truancy goes down and Grade point averages rise. Teaching Social and Emotional Learning skills in schools is an exciting and powerful new field. join us and learn how this work can make a profound difference in our children’s lives and on our planet. Register here to participate! In Peace, Kelly McGrath, Esq. - Executive Director Florida Restorative Justice Association River Phoenix Center for Peacebuilding ?Spreads Restorative Justice in Alachua By: Katie Fields, MEd, Eds, LMHC - RPCP Managing Director centerforpeacebuilding.org As part of its mission to provide and promote the principles and best practices of peacebuilding, the River Phoenix Center for Peacebuilding (RPCP) has brought Restorative Justice (RJ) to the Gainesville and Alachua County community. In early 2012, RPCP began seeding the idea of RJ to leaders within the school and justice system. Three years later, RJ is being used within the Juvenile Justice system, in neighborhoods, at schools, and in businesses, to respond to conflict and reduce violence. The community is steadily embracing the concept of restorative, rather than punitive, measures to address harm. RPCP has adopted Baltimore, MD’s Community Conferencing model of RJ. In October 2012, RPCP sponsored its first March and Rally to End Bullying. The following year, the entire month of October was devoted to peacebuilding, including providing RJ training to school guidance counselors, a vice principal, juvenile probation officers, law enforcement, an attorney, and other professionals in Alachua County. Community leaders appreciated the training so much that a second was held in October 2014. One of the school counselors from the last training adopted Howard Zehr’s Little Book of Restorative Justice as a tool to share RJ with teachers and staff at her school. The group read and discussed the book and is using its principles to address student behavior at a local high school. As the community learned about RJ, cases began to surface. RPCP assisted with issues related to bullying, racism, neighbor disputes, and conflict between co-workers. RJ circles were held at schools, churches, and libraries. In 2014, the Department of Juvenile Justice acquired funding to support RJ for youth who had committed their first or second offence of misdemeanor battery or a property crime at home, school, or in the community. Since then, cases have been referred from Alachua, Bradford, and Clay counties. To date, RPCP has conducted 13 RJ circles, with a 100% success rate of reaching an agreement between the parties involved and an 85% success rate of fulfilled agreements. 2015 has brought great enthusiasm and support for RJ with our schools. The Executive Director of ESE/Student Services invited RPCP to provide training and consultation to Alachua County Schools. To date, RPCP has trained school counselors, deans, principals and vice principals from four elementary schools, three middle schools, three high schools, a multilevel research-focused school, and a multilevel exceptional student school, as well as the Exceptional Education Specialist and the Supervisor of Guidance and Student Services. ? To support competency building, RPCP provides on-going coaching and experiential opportunities. RPCP is partnering with Dr. Sandra Pavelka to provide another 2 day training for those interested in RJ. The training is intended to contribute toward an RJ certification accredited by the FRJA. Throughout the year, trained professionals are invited to observe and co-facilitate cases referred to RPCP by various agencies including the State’s Attorney’s Office, law enforcement and businesses. RPCP also includes RJ in their programs, such as their Communication & Self-Esteem series designed for at-risk youth and their Peace through Sports program aimed at teaching social-emotional skills to those involved in organized sports. RPCP believes conflict is inevitable, but violence is not. By teaching youth and adults to consider the impact of their behavior and stressing the importance of repairing harm and preventing it from happening again, communities will be safer and more cohesive. Unbroken Circles Book Wins Big Publisher Thanks RJ Advocates in Return By: Kenneth Johnson - Author kenjohnson.americasculturalist.tripod.com Since May my book, Unbroken Circles for Schools, has been receiving a lot of attention. Thanks to the NACRJ leadership, I was even allowed the opportunity to give a panel presentation on my book and my work. This past August, the Florida Authors & Publishers Association held its annual President’s Award for the best books in, from, or about Florida. Only gold & silver medals are awarded at this contest based upon a very detailed points system. Needless to say, my book won two gold medals at the awards banquet in Lake Buena Vista, FL. Winning the President’s Award, my book will now be sent to a state library consortium for placement on their list of award winners. Additionally, FAPA officers will take the book to Chicago, IL in 2016 for Book Expo America (BEA). BEA is the nation’s largest book-based trade expo and showing for books. Dr. Cindy Bigbie, Director Community Connections Program Tallahassee, Florida Community Connections is a restorative justice program for youths between the ages of 13 and 17 who have had some involvement with the legal system and who participate as part of a diversion option or as part of their probation. This 12-week program begins with a restorative justice process of exploring the harm done and how to repair it. ? Over the course of the 12 weeks, youth are supported in completing their restorative justice agreements so they can be fully reintegrated back into the "community" where the harm was done. Additionally, youth come twice a week to the program and sit in circle with a one-to-one student-to-volunteer ratio and learn the process of Non Violent Communication (NVC) as created by Marshall Rosenberg, Ph.D. As part of the NVC process, they also practice giving and receiving empathy weekly with their case manager. At the end of the 12 weeks, they are matched with a volunteer mentor for six months and continue the empathy process as practice and whenever they have a trigger moment. The NVC process is considered to be a proactive restorative practice - as it supports participants to build connection and to come back into connection when conflict arises. By creating social capital via NVC, participants are less likely to be involved in harmful actions in the future - eliminating the need for the more elaborate restorative justice conferences going forward and/or additional legal involvement. Dr. Mara Schiff Florida Atlantic University Boca Raton, Florida Dr. Schiff is an Associate Professor of Criminology and Criminal Justice at Florida Atlantic University. Dr. Schiff has been researching, writing, publishing, teaching, speaking and training about restorative justice for nearly 2 decades. Dr. Schiff has co-authored/co-edited 3 books on restorative justice, numerous academic journal articles, and is regularly invited to speak on restorative justice issues at local, national and international events. Dr. Schiff recently was invited to speak about restorative justice at a university TED Talk event. Hart Phoenix, Board President Jeffrey Weisberg, Executive Director River Phoenix Center for Peacebuilding Gainesville, Florida ?centerforpeacebuilding.org The River Phoenix Center for Peacebuilding (RPCP) has proclaimed October as Community Peacebuilding Month. During this month, the RPCP scheduled a march and rally for peace with an emphasis on the end of bullying, introduced cutting edge, best and next practices trainings and workshops, partnered with the University of Florida for Conflict Resolution Week, and offered other events related to reducing conflicts and violence in our community. Below is a picture from the Rally Against Bullying campaign during Community Peacebuilding Month. In light of the recent events in Ferguson, the RPCP partnered with Chief Tony Jones and the Gainesville Police Department to address Disproportionate Minority Contact by the creation of curriculum and hosting dialogues between Law Enforcement and African American youth. Every Officer in this city will receive this training and the relationship building that has already been achieved is a giant step towards mutual understanding and respect. Dr. Sandra Pavelka Florida Gulf Coast University Ft. Myers, Florida Dr. Sandra Pavelka serves as Director of the Institute for Youth and Justice Studies and as Associate Professor of Political Science and Public Administration at Florida Gulf Coast University. Dr. Pavelka previously served as Project Administrator of the Balanced and Restorative Justice (BARJ) Project funded by the Office of Juvenile and Delinquency Prevention, U.S. Department of Justice.
