Why me? have published a new guidance paper: Virtual Restorative Justice: Good Practice Guide.

This paper goes into detail about everything a facilitator needs to know when managing a restorative process online, with embedded video clips to demonstrate our points.

It covers a wide range of subjects, including:

  • Using an administrator to support facilitators with IT.
  • The benefits and drawbacks of different video platforms.
  • How to ensure participants are safe.
  • Considering accessibility for different participants.
  • Managing emotions.
  • Working with co-facilitators.
  • Recording meetings.
  • Running the conference smoothly.
  • Agreeing outcome agreements.
  • Managing “informal time” at the end of the Conference.
  • Indirect restorative processes.
