Victim Services Resources

Some rj practitioners have come to this field with a background in victim services. For the rest of us, it is important that we educate ourselves on the issues, experiences, and challenges of the victims with whom we work. An important tenet of restorative practice is to cause no more harm, and often, to accomplish this we need additional resources. This page aims to provide some information and resources to help rj practitioners in BC work more competently with victims.

If you have resources or materials regarding this issue, please email us at and we will share it here.
