Function Based Restorative Justice Practices for Client Harm Reduction
This workshop will provide an overview of restorative justice, which is defined by Illinois
Balanced and Restorative Justice as a set of practices that address injustice by thinking about the harms, needs, and obligations of all of those involved in order to decide how best to repair the harm by addressing those needs and obligations. In this same vein, this workshop will examine ways in which helping professionals can incorporate alternate interventions and strategies in moments of crisis to reduce risks and benefit their clients as much as possible. Empirically supported literature and data will be presented where applicable and available, and audience questions and discussion will be welcomed throughout the workshop.
