Restorative Practices PG Cert / PG Dip / MSc

Course Description

Restorative practice puts repairing harm done to relationships and people over and above the need for assigning blame and dispensing punishment. This programme attracts graduates from a multitude of backgrounds, and will develop the role of anyone whose career has taken them into working with families, with local communities, within the criminal justice system or in education systems. It offers you the chance to develop the skills required to establish restorative justice processes, preparing parties, facilitating storytelling, dialogue and problem-solving and delivering restorative interventions. A PgCert exit award is available upon completion of three modules (60 credit points).
