AIM Restorative Practice and HSB

 Two Day AIM Restorative Practice and Harmful Sexual Behaviour
Target audience
This two-day course is primarily targeted at experienced restorative practitioners working either in the criminal justice system or in the context of a child safeguarding/therapeutic environment and at those practitioners wishing to explore the application of restorative practice in the context of HSB

Participants may have only a basic understanding of harmful sexual behaviours, but ideally should have practice experience in the field of restorative work with cases defined by the RJC Practice Guidance as ‘Sensitive and Complex’. This would equate to practitioners at an intermediate or advanced level or be managing staff at that level
Course Aim
This two-day course will enable participants to have a clear understanding of restorative practices and their use in sensitive and complex cases which involve harmful sexual behavior. It is based on the body of research and practice experience contained in the AIM Restorative Practice and HSB (Mercer 2020) and will need access to that guidance in order to complete the training

Theoretical perspectives, up to date research, the use of appropriate assessment and practice exercises in shaping preparation as well as meeting facilitation will be covered. The course will employ a mixture of training methods, including direct input, small group exercises, case studies
