"Circle Keeping in Intra-Familial Sexual Abuse Cases"

  • John Jay College of Criminal Justice

Elizabeth Clemants will discuss the history behind Hidden Water:  A restorative justice response to intra-familial child sexual abuse cases.  

Click here to register for this free event. 

This presentation will discuss the theory of circle keeping in restoring balance to families devastated by the impact of abuse and include information about trauma and how the indigenous practice of circle keeping is in a unique position to honor the family while holding it accountable to itself.  The presentation will go through the mechanics of how Hidden Water prepares a family for this intense work, and how the preparation and the work can be used with other types of systems in a similar way.  Elizabeth will speak to some of the wisdom coming from the different circles that we are keeping.  She will show how that wisdom is not only changing the face of healing in the CSA community, but suggests many new ways for all sorts of dispute resolvers to engage creatively with people, as they are, in conflict.
