WHO SHOULD BE TRAINED:
Typically, a core group of 10-15 people are trained for a community. The people come from a variety of walks of life and have different perspectives. Here is an example of the types of people who would participate in training.
- Five social service workers
- One social service attorney
- Five tribal elders
- One policeman
- One clergy person
- One psychologist
- One or two friends of the person with the problem
- One supervisor, if the problem is job-related
At the end of training, one person usually emerges as a natural Circle Keeper. This person leads from the heart, and will be the person sought out to call a circle in the community as the need arises. The others who are trained are equally important in fulfilling the restorative justice process through Talking Circles.
Often, the first one or two times new trainees do their own talking circle, I am called in as a mentor to observe and offer suggestions.
NOTE: After training, if you desire additional support, Mentoring is available.
