2019 is off to a great start!
My dissertation is due at the end of February, so I have been working hard writing and revising. It is really exciting to see the final version coming together! I feel so grateful looking back at the last three years of work to have had the time and support to dive so deeply into a topic that I care so much about!
We started the new school year at Victoria University by training another group of residential halls staff as restorative justice facilitators. It was a great couple days and a wonderful group of people! It is so exciting to see restorative practices implementation continuing to grow in the university. We will also be training all of the Residential Advisers in circles and restorative conversations like we did last year over the coming weeks. I can’t wait! If you would like to learn more about restorative practices in the Residential Halls at Victoria University, check out a recent article I published Restorative practices in residence halls at Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand.
I was very excited this month to have the art piece I commissioned illustrating restorative justice shared by Brunilda Pali, whose article and presentation at the EFRJ Conference originally inspired me to try to create an image. She has also kindly shared my blog on her site www.restorotopias.com. She has some great content – I highly recommend checking it out!
