Group Conference

Group Conferences: In a group conference a trained facilitator guides a discussion among victim(s), offender(s), and others who have been impacted by the crime or wrongdoing. The group discusses the impact of the offense, educating the offender about how they and their community were affected by the person’s actions. The group then agrees on how the offender will be held accountable for his or her actions, how the harm done will be repaired, and how the offender will learn not to re-offend.
