About This Event

This presentation will introduce participants to the principles of Restorative Justice and it’s potential to empower healthy relationships, repair harm while transforming conflict, and create just and equitable environments. It will explore how those who work with youth can create restorative cultures within their contexts so that when harm or conflict arise, they have established relationships of support for themselves and those they serve.

Join us for this experience and learn as we: 

  • Build a broad understanding of Restorative Justice as a theory and practice;
  • Integrate concepts of repairing harm, establishing healthy relationships and transforming conflict into your work culture;
  • Become empowered to apply new skills and ways of thinking in their interactions with youth and families you serve

About This Event

Human trafficking is the fastest growing and tied as the second largest criminal industry worldwide, generating an estimated $150.2 billion each year.

By reframing and humanizing an issue that is often sensationalized and stigmatized, we can begin to understand how human trafficking impacts our youth and families. This interactive presentation will help create a clearer vision of what human trafficking may look like in our Indiana communities. 

During this workshop you will: 

  • understand the definitions of human trafficking under federal and state law;
  • recognize risk factors that make youth vulnerable to being exploited, as well as what makes them less likely to identify as a victim and less likely to leave a trafficking situation;
  • be able to identify victims and how to report a suspected case; and
  • learn what intervention and victim services are available locally, regionally and statewide.
