This training manual was developed for use with a three-day Real Justice Training workshop. The manual introduces the history family group conferences (FGCs). The theories of why FGCs work so well, and the philosophy of restorative justice underlying the practice are presented. The role of conference coordinators and appropriate incidents for conferencing are discussed. The steps of conference preparation including contacting participants are explained. The conference process and resolution process are presented along with recommended coordination techniques. Included are necessary contact, conference, and evaluation forms, the conference coordinator's "script", and a glossary of terms.
