Restorative Justice and Trauma Healing Modalities in Prison
Public Programs and Performances WKS 110 1.00
This experiential workshop is grounded in an understanding that the growth of the prison industrial complex has compromised the health and well-being of communities of color and impoverished communities in the United States, and the need for a national movement to end mass incarceration. Over the course of the weekend, we will explore hands-on trauma healing modalities for men, women, and young people in prisons and jails through the use of restorative justice practices, including the Victim Offender Education Groups (VOEG); yoga; meditation; mindfulness; and strategies for addressing trauma on individual, community, and systems levels. Faculty will include members of the staff and facilitators of Insight Prison Project.
