Perspectives on Healing the Aftermath of Violence

What happens to individuals, families and communities in the wake of violence? This workshop will provide a variety of perspectives and viewpoints about this issue, and it will be conducted in a peacemaking circle, with audience members being allowed to observe and listen to an incredible dialogue process. The participants in this circle include survivors and co-victims of violence, and individuals who have committed acts of violence and have served many years of incarceration, but are now returned citizens. Observers will hopefully get a feel for ways that healing can begin, based on their stories. Facilitating the peacemaking circle is adjunct professor Don Haldeman, who was taught the First Nation process 17 years ago, and who brings the process to all of his classes.
