Recent developments in neuroscience speak volumes to the work being done in restorative justice.  The Community Justice Centre is offering a workshop that will explore the connections and offer insights into how working with colleagues and clients can be enhanced and improved.  The 2 day workshop will be held Saturday and Sunday, September 27 & 28th.

Raj Dhasi will be leading the workshop, based on her extensive background in organizational change and conflict management and her years of work with the Langley Community Justice Initiatives group which pioneered victim-offender reconciliation process in BC.  Dhasi is a consultant with Turning Point Resolutions and holds a Masters in Organizational Conflict Analysis & Management from Royal Roads and post-graduate studies in neuroscience.

Dhasi is an extremely well regarded presenter – sharp-minded, intuitive and highly skilled in her work. Her participants consistently give her rave reviews for her remarkable presence and expertise.  She collaborated in designing and developing a course on Mindfulness for the Justice Institute of BC where she was the lead content expert for the course. Dhasi is recognized as incredibly knowledgeable in the field of Mindfulness.  During workshop presentations, she is an absolutely gifted facilitator and communicator who has the magic touch and professional zeal to guide groups through some difficult times. She is able to teach and lead groups to a better place.

“This workshop is an essential for anyone working other people” says Bruce Curtis, Chief Administrator of the Community Justice Centre.  “We are bringing it to the Comox Valley to support the work of those on the front-lines of human conflict – teachers, social workers, parents, church folk, community and social services workers, lawyers, and those involved with non-profits striving to build a better world.”  The workshop is completely open to everyone in the Comox Valley with an interest in the field, though registration is limited.

The $40 registration fee includes lunches and break refreshments on both days, as well as the workbook and reference materials that will support deeper understanding following the workshop.  Registration is by calling the Community Justice Centre, 250-334-8101 and providing your name, phone number, and e-mail address.  Volunteers of the Community Justice Centre will have free registration as part of their on-going volunteer education offerings.
