The Ministry of Justice recognises Nelson “Madiba” Mandela as a champion of Restorative Justice and is very pleased to honour his legacy by initiating progressive conflict resolution programmes which promote healing, understanding and support. In commemoration of Nelson Mandela Month in July 2014 the Ministry has embarked on a youth outreach initiative entitled “Healing Words.” The workshop-style programme introduces participants to the power of words to heal and demonstrate how negative emotions can be channelled positively towards creative pursuits. The programme is being introduced at six non-governmental youth organisations during the period 14th – 18th July, 2014 and is facilitated by Wendell De Leon, Behavioural Change Therapist and The 2 Cents Movement, a group of dynamic spoken word artistes who have engaged the young participants via the art of using the Spoken Word and Poetry to creatively express their thoughts and feelings. Ministry staff members have also volunteered their time by assisting workshop participants with writing and group exercises. This initiative forms part of the Ministry of Justice’s mandate to transform the Criminal Justice System in Trinidad and Tobago using a Restorative Justice approach. One of the major objectives of the Ministry is to promote and formally include restorative justice systems and procedures into the criminal justice process in order to aid in the rehabilitation of offenders and promote healing for victims and communities where possible. Look out for continued updates on the Healing Words initiative. ...
