TCRJ services are based on a systemic approach that provides a comprehensive framework to analyze, address, transform and prevent conflict in its personal, interpersonal and structural dimensions. In recognition of the multiple dimensions of conflict, TCRJ offers multiple services designed to facilitate the participation and involvement of different actors and sectors of society in a collective effort to build restorative relationships and structures. TCRJ services promote justice as a process that seeks healing and reparation for individuals and communities, as a socially shared responsibility.
Strongly rooted in the principle that the starting point for any type of change depends on the context and not on abstract techniques, TCRJ services are adapted to the local culture. Consequently, TCRJ training and seminars use the experiential learning method that facilitates learning as a collective process where trainees learn from each other’s experiences and worldviews.
