The subject locates community conferencing amongst interests based facilitative methods of conflict resolution, and contrasts approaches of mediation and conferencing. It outlines theoretical underpinnings of facilitation methods increasingly being favoured in preventing disputes escalating to the rights based court arena, and restoring social harmony. Students examine the application of various models of conferencing as they are applied in diverse contexts such as community justice centres, schools, child welfare, juvenile justice and adult corrections. Students can choose a research or practice focus.
