Summer Restorative Justice Workshop Series starts June 5

The Conflict Center will offer a series of three Restorative Justice workshops this summer, starting with Restorative Principles I on June 5.

This workshop teaches the fundamental theory of Restorative Justice, a value–based approach that includes communication, reparation, reintegration, healing, responsibility and most of all respect. The process gives the victim a voice and the opportunity for reparation and healing, being able to ask questions to the wrongdoer in a guided and safe environment. It also provides the possibility for the wrongdoer to take responsibility for his/her acts and be part of the decision making to repair the harm in a constructive way.

This workshop will be held on June 5, 2015 from 8:30am – 4:30pm at The Conflict Center, 4140 Tejon Street in Denver.  Fee for this workshop is $99.00 until June 1, and after that date increases to $120.00. For more information or to register, call 303-433-4983 or visit www.conflictcenter.org

New evaluation results for 2014 program activities

2014 Evaluation Results of The Conflict Center’s Programs

The following is a summary of the 2014 evaluation results for each of The Conflict Center’s program areas. TCC continually evaluates its programs and is engaged in ongoing efforts to strengthen evaluation tools and procedures. Programs include School services, Emotional Intelligence and Critical Decision Making (Youth), and Turning Anger and Conflict into Allies (Adult).

TACA Adult Multi-session/Series Program

  • What we found (Adult): The TACA courses had 72 valid pre to post survey data comparisons. The survey scored measured a positive improvement in all three domains of Anger Awareness, Self-Efficacy, and Conflict Management. All questions indicated a statistically significant (p<.03) difference in the positive.
  • Effect Size: As a standard measure we calculated Cohen d effect size, which measures the strength of the impact of the classes.   The effect was large to extra large on 4 questions, medium on the majority (12) questions and small on the remaining 2 questions.
    • The greatest effect was an increase in clients reporting they know what steps to take to resolve conflicts in healthy ways.
    • Clients reported increases in abilities to see the other persons point of view, striving for both people to have their needs met when in conflict and knowing their physical signs of early anger.
  • 8 out of 10 adults who complete our program show significant increases in their ability to manage their anger, manage conflict and solve problems. (2014, data)
