Victim - Offender Mediation (VOM) is provided by several community dispute resolution centers (CDRC) state-wide in collaboration with County Juvenile Justice, District Attorney, and Circuit Court partners.
The workshop will be presented by Mr. Ken Braun, currently the Executive Director for Polk County Mediation in Dallas, Oregon. Ken's organization specializes in this type of casework and Ken has more than 20 years of VOM experience. He will share his insight on a wide range of skills and techniques used for this unique dispute resolution service. Ken will also address the Restorative Justice (RJ) principles at play that serve to frame just how VOM is practiced.
