This interactive workshop will explore restorative approaches to sexual harm through the stories of survivors, people who have done harm, and facilitators. After an overview of key frameworks of restorative and transformative justice, participants will be asked to choose to go into breakout groups, choosing to be in a circle with survivors to explore a journey in healing that was ultimately non-punitive, a second circle exploring people who have done face-to-face direct dialogue with the person who did them harm, or a third circle with people who have done harm exploring their journey of accountability.
