The Minnesota Department of Corrections has produced a set of practical materials to guide people who are training others in facilitation of restorative group conferences. The ‘Practice Conference Scenarios’ part provides numerous situations to practice the facilitation of a restorative conference. Each role-playing scenario describes an offense or wrongdoing, as well as roles for participants in the conference. Among many practice scenarios are the following: driving while intoxicated; felony menacing; disrespectful student; bullying; truancy; school assault; damage to property; intra-familial theft; stolen truck; vacation burglary; construction arson; and burglary of a dwelling.
