Moving Toward Wholeness Workshop from the Church Council on Justice and Corrections
April 24, 2013 - 9:30am - 8:00pm
Moving Toward Wholeness is a daylong workshop to be hosted by the Church Council on Justice and Corrections during National Victims of Crime Awareness Week (April 24, 2013).
Through a keynote talk by Wilma Derksen, presentations by specialists, and group discussions, we will explore the preparations necessary for restorative processes. Speakers will address the spiritual and interpersonal preparations that allow (a) victims of crime, (b) offenders, and (c) communities to become ready to engage in restorative processes.
We will explore how to foster the involvement of victims, offenders, and communities who want to engage in restorative processes to achieve closure and healing from the impacts of crime.
