This webinar will provide a background description of restorative justices approaches for working with youth involved with the law, suggestions for integrating restorative justice approaches into your work, and an example from a community-based youth program.

It is a follow up to a previous webinar, Supporting Positive Outcomes for Youth Involved with the Law, which was based on the recently launched Research to Practice report on the same topic.

In both the last webinar and report, presenters provide a high level overview of the impact of the Youth Criminal Justice Act (YCJA) and argue that punitive approaches to youth justice may entrench or exacerbate harm. The Youth Criminal Justice Act enables the provision of extrajudicial community-based youth diversion and re-integration supports as an alternative.

This webinar is hosted by YouthREX.
