Restorative Justice is a practice and a philosophy. It combines theories, concepts and actions from multiple fields including philosophy, psychology, criminal justice and values found in many faith traditions. In this 4000 level class we will dive deeply into concepts like shame, forgiveness, trauma, revenge and healing. We will relate these powerful concepts to the ideas and practices that are used in restorative justice to explore their alignment and/or lack of connection.


Learning Outcomes:
1. Develop a deep understanding of the concepts and practices in the field of restorative justice
2. Develop an historical understanding of key values and concepts such as revenge, trauma, forgiveness and healing
3. Analyze the connections between restorative justice and the concepts described above to better understand where there is consistency and diconnection
