Opening Session, Keynote, and Awards Ceremony

Please join us for this session to introduce NCCHC's incoming officers, celebrate our 2022 award winners, and learn from our keynote speaker on Shifting the Culture: The Power of Restorative Practices. 

In this keynote presentation, Stephen Jackson will discuss the intersectionality of restorative justice, health care, and corrections – and explain why it matters. 

Restorative practice is an emerging social science that studies how to strengthen relationships between individuals as well as social connections within communities. While restorative justice is a largely reactive way of addressing crime or harm after it occurs, restorative practices are a proactive approach to preventing harm. Mr. Jackson will describe how the implementation of restorative practices in corrections by those in the helping professions can shift the culture and improve the quality of health care.

Educational Objectives

  • Describe the basic principles of restorative justice and restorative practices
