The RJC has developed a set of three handbooks for the restorative practice field aimed at promoting the delivery of high quality restorative services to a nationally agreed standard.
RJC Practitioners Handbook – a handbook developed for our practitioner members to help support them in the delivery of high quality restorative services and the development of their professional practice.
RJC Trainers Handbook - a handbook developed for our trainer members to help support them in delivering high quality restorative training both to practitioners and those seeking to learn about restorative approaches.
RJC Service Providers Handbook – a handbook for our service provider members to help support them in the delivery of high quality restorative services and the development of their practitioners.
The handbooks contain all the relevant standards, guidance and RJC resources for each membership group in a single document which can be easily accessed as a reference text for daily use in service provision, practice and training.
Each handbook covers the overarching RJC Standards Framework, relevant aspects of the RJC Practitioner Competency Framework, the relevant Code of Practice or Service Standards for that membership group and guidance. They also cover the relevant RJC policies and processes which underpin the Standards Framework and give a brief overview of the different types of RJC membership available to practitioners.
Each handbook gives details of the RJC accreditations available for each group including practitioner accreditation, training course approval and the RSQM.
Each handbook also contains useful tailor made resources designed for the relevant membership group that can be adapted for use in day to day work. Clean versions of these resources are available to RJC members:
- Example risk assessment mitigation plan
- Restorative practitioner supervision preparation checklist and supervision meeting action table
- Sample outcome agreement
- Sample training evaluation form
- Sample victim contact letter
The handbooks were developed in partnership with our members, following a membership-wide consultation. We anticipate that the handbooks will grow and evolve with the development of the restorative practice field, and we welcome any comments or suggestions from our members on content. Comments should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hard copies of the handbooks are available to buy from the RJC - email email@example.com.
