Join my Guest Host Stephen Kotev and Barbara Raye as they talk about the Restorative Justice practice of Victim Offender Mediation. VOM engages those who have been harmed by crime or other actions, those who have offended or harmed others, and the communities they live in. Its goals are to empower people to define their own needs for healing, prevent future harm, and build community connections for the long term health of everyone involved. She will share with us what it means, how it works, and some of the creative ways victims have found to heal the harm that has been done to them.
In our Restorative Justice series, I will be speaking with Doug Noll, internationally renowned mediator, author, and speaker talk about restorative justice and how it is vastly different from the criminal justice system. What is it? How can it help you if you are a victim or a family member of a victim in a crime? We will also talk about Doug’s award-winning work, Prison of Peace.
