In-Person: Advanced Topics in Restorative Justice Workshop

The Advanced Topics in Restorative Justice Workshop is open to participants who have already taken TRC’s Foundations training (or are continuing from the the foundations training). This is a dynamic training in Circle implementation and skills development. We will workshop the implementation of Circles in communities and schools, learn how to conduct highly-charged circles for conflict scenarios, as well as other lessons from the field. Through this we will cultivate and advance the art and practice of being a Circle Keeper.

This training will be led by Shailly Agnihotri, TRC’s Founder/ED, along with experienced teen and community leaders in Restorative Justice. 

The health and safety of our guests and staff is a top priority for the Garrison Institute.
We continue to follow the health and safety guidelines pertaining to COVID-19 as set forth by our local officials, New York State and the Center for Disease Control. Please visit this page for more information about the new safety protocols in place as well as answers to frequently asked questions.
