What is a "Facilitated Restorative Conference?"

During a restorative conference, Restorative Justice Leaders (or Facilitators) facilitate a dialogue between the person who caused harm and the harmed parties.  Typically done while sitting in a circle, the parties discuss the harm that occurred, how it affected each of the people involved, and then decide what steps can be taken to repair the harm.  Typically a written agreement is reached at the end of the conference as to how the person who caused harm will remain accountable to repair the harm.
