Foundations Course

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. 

Each 3 hour course has 16-24 participants.  Classes are divided into 3 sections: Embodied Practice/Didactic, Demonstration/Q/A, and Participant Praxis/Integration.  Each class covers a different Restorative Justice related topic and connects participants to living restoratively through the RJIOK Omni-positional Leadership Model. The RJIOK Foundations Course is taught by an interracial team of Restorative Practice Professionals.
