Sitting Down Together- How Can Restorative Justice Inform Collaborative Practice?
This workshop will explore the purposes and practices of Restorative Justice – conflict resolution that engages stakeholders in repairing harm, restoring right relations and reintegrating individuals into community- and how we may bring those purposes and practices to Collaborative Law. Restorative approaches have been used effectively to address the challenges of conflict in families, schools, neighborhoods and organizations. Doug Reynolds will introduce Restorative Justice, and workshop participants will have the opportunity to experience restorative practices and connect the experience to their work and life situations. Restorative techniques can be added to existing practices and may open ways to expand one’s practice to new areas in dispute resolution.

He is a graduate of Dartmouth College and Boston University School of Law. He has practiced law since 1973 in Worcester, Boston and Cambridge.
Doug has served on the Working Group on Restorative Justice, which held Boston conferences on Restorative Justice, and the Advisory Board of the Center for Restorative Justice at Suffolk University. He volunteered for many years on the Peacemaking Planning Committee and the Community Involvement Project at Roca, Inc. in Chelsea, MA. Doug has lectured and taught about Restorative Justice, and he has led peacemaking circles in church, school and community settings.
