Crime creates a situationally induced involuntary and unlikely relationship between the victim or victims survivors and the offender.  Restorative processes offer ways to encourage boundaries instead of alienation or dehumanization in conflict.  This creates accountability and resilience for all parties involved.   The restorative process empowers those who were impacted by the incident, help them process their feelings and thoughts, integrate the incident into their larger story, and determine what they might need to fully move forward. Restorative questions focus on the incident and allow the person who caused harm to consider and articulate how his/her actions affected others. It encourages empathy, accountability, expression of feelings and thoughts, and problem-solving.

OFFENDERS

If you have been convicted of a crime, our current system seeks to separate and isolate you from information, participation, and those impacted by the harm you have done. Our classes, coaching, and mediation offer a place to connect, tell your story, take responsibility for the incident, understand the larger context in which the incident occurred and the harm that has been done so that you can heal.

CHILDREN AT HOME

Oklahoma culture offers little support to teach effective age-appropriate restorative discipline practices or how to manage frustration when under stress. Our restorative programs and coaching offer a place to connect, tell your story, take accountability, and understand the harm that has been done so that healing can occur.  Restorative practices at home increase empathy and emotional intelligence, increasing the likelihood of building the life and legacy you envision with your child and modeling the values you profess.

INDIVIDUALS

Restorative practices in coaching and self-analysis build resilience, increase emotional intelligence, empathy, and cultural competence and increase the likelihood of building the life and legacy you envision.

VICTIMS/Survivors

If you have been the victim of a crime or are connected to someone who has been deeply impacted by a crime, our current system seeks to separate and isolate you from information, participation, and the offender.  Our advocacy, classes, coaching, and mediation offer a place to connect, tell your story, and integrate the harm that has been done so that healing can occur.

SCHOOLS

Our current system disproportionately refers African American children two to three times more frequently and disciplines more harshly than white children.   African American children are 330% more likely to be suspended or expelled.  Our programs and coaching support restorative practices in schools as well as creating culturally responsive classrooms. Restorative practices empower students to take responsibility for their actions, increase empathy, and find creative solutions to harm done.

COUPLES

Oklahoma has the 3rd highest divorce rate in the U.S. with little support to navigate conflict and manage frustration under stress.  Our restorative programs and coaching offer a place to connect, tell your story, take accountability, understand the harm that has been done so that healing can occur. Restorative committed relationships build resilience, increase relationship satisfaction, and increase the likelihood of building the life and legacy you envision.
