CRJ 650 Victim Offender Mediation (3 credits)

The introduction of restorative justice philosophy into the traditional criminal justice system has resulted in the adoption of a number of dialogue processes, which will be the focus of this new offering. The course will explore the humanistic mediation model and the community mediation model used by many local mediation groups. The course will also cover other processes such as community sentencing circles, restorative conferencing, reparative boards and family group conferencing. Participants will not only learn the theories behind these practices, but will have and opportunity to experience them through role- plays. Resolving conflict and dealing with the aftermath of crime through dialogue is a highly valued skill in restorative justice.
