RJIOK Certified Facilitator Training

Level    1


Level 1 classes include: 


The Foundations Course - An 8 session intensive that explores the RJIOK Leadership Model and the theory grounding this culturally competent, trauma-informed, systemic approach to restorative practices. We can teach you how to lead a circle in a few hours but to be a great facilitator requires a foundational understanding of the Self and the systems of which we are a part. Our unique approach to Restorative Leadership is omni-positional and develops confidence in leading restoratively in any situation. 

Other topics included in Foundations are:

  • Restorative principles, process and values

  • Culture and punishment in the United States

  • Legacy burdens and gifts

  • Racial historical trauma and epigenetics

  • Triangulation

  • Power and Discernment

  • Identity, Cultural Competence and Restorative Process

  • Trauma and the individual System

  • Restorative dialogue coaching

  • *(when in school settings) Restorative Justice and School Discipline
