This training is an invitation to learn about the impacts of bias and unconscious systemic power and privilege on people’s daily lives. Together, the trainers and participants will be encouraged to do the courageous work of shining a light on ourselves, in our roles of restorative justice practitioners, facilitators and trainers.

The training includes 2 online sessions (several dates available in April and May) before the 1 full day in-person training in Tallinn (28th of May) and 1 post training online session. In addition, the trainers will be hosting a panel workshop during the conference on the process of creating and delivering this training in which participants are welcome to participate. 

This training invites us to ask ourselves questions such as:

  • What are conscious and unconscious biases?  
  • To what extent are we able and willing to engage with our own conscious and unconscious biases? 
  • Are we even aware of them? 
  • How might we be perceived by participants in our restorative justice practices? 
  • Do they see us as having certain kinds of power and privilege they do not have - e.g. able-bodied as opposed to someone with a disability, we are free while they are prison? 
  • How do such dynamics and issues of class, gender, ethnicity, culture, sexuality, religion, language, etc., impact the work we do?’.

The training will be facilitated by Monique Anderson and Christina de Angelis.

We want to acknowledge that this is a difficult and sensitive topic which needs a lot of care and wisdom. For this reason, we have created this questionnaire which will give you more clarity about what we are offering and allow us to ensure we are responsive to your unique needs.

It is the first time the EFRJ is offering this training and it may raise potentially challenging issues. Participants will be asked to fill in a questionnaire and join the conversations to help the trainers co-create the framework for the training so that it will meet people’s needs as much as possible and be a useful and effective space.
