It brings together the three parties to a conflict – those who have acted, those directly impacted and the wider community – within an intentional systemic context, to dialogue as equals. Participants invite each other and attend voluntarily. The dialogue process used is shared openly with all participants, and guided by a community member. The process ends when actions have been found that bring mutual benefit.</p><p>Restorative Circles are facilitated in 3 stages designed to identity the key factors in the conflict, reach agreements on next steps, and evaluate the results. As a circle form, they invite shared power, mutual understanding, self-responsibility and effective action.</p><p>Please watch the <a href="http://www.restorativecircles.org/video" target="_blank">videos</a>, read the online <a href="http://www.restorativecircles.org/press" target="_blank">articles</a>, attend one of our <a href="http://www.restorativecircles.org/upcoming-learning-events" target="_blank">learning events</a> and collaborate with those developing practical responses to community safety and empowerment.</p><p>Also, like us on Facebook, here:<a href="http://www.facebook.com/RestorativeCircles">http://www.facebook.com/RestorativeCircles</a></p><p>check us out daily on Twitter:<a href="http://twitter.com/restoracircles">http://twitter.com/restoracircles</a></p><p>You can also write to contatodominic (at) gmail.com</p><div><br></div></div>]]> </content> <author> <name/> </author> </entry> </feed>
