Training Updates and Latest News


ADR Network SA will be running monthly breakfast events around topics related to ADR, Restorative Justice, Mediation and Peacemaking

This month’s theme is PRACTICAL RESTORATIVE PRACTICES that promote Restorative Justice in Legal Disputes and Restorative Discipline in schools and workplaces

Here is an invite for our Durban Event

You are invited to breakfast!


Where? Vuleka Centre, Botha’s Hill, Durban

When? Wednesday, 3 June 2015 at 8am

What? Over breakfast we will present ideas on practical restorative practices that support Restorative Justice and Restorative Discipline

Why? We think justice is all about making things right again. And so if we are not promoting a justice in our legal system and a discipline in our schools and workplaces that restores, redeems and heals than we are probably not part of the solution, but part of the dis-ease

It is possible that we are indelibly changed by one encounter. By one word. We never know whom we may meet or what we may hear. One encounter may thrust us into the larger story of our lives. Or we may just share a good breakfast with a great view over the valley of 1000 hills. Either way, you should come!

Cost? R 150

RSVP and bookings? training@adr-networksa.co.za

Bring? Your business cards, brochures, friends, relatives, enemies

Look out for invites for Cape Town and Jozi which will go out later this week. For ongoing updates check in regularly, subscribe to our blog or send a mail to training@adr-networksa.co.za


22-26 June is 5 day Training in Durban/Jozi/CT (the latter two contingent on minimum numbers)

Please send a mail to training@adr-networksa.co.za if you still wish to register. Remember the Thursday of each program is Court Annexed Mediation which can be done as a one day workshop at R 1000 for those with previous training in mediation

3. Current Matters

This week I am preparing papers in the matter of a complaint to the Judicial Services Commission relating to a High Court Judge as well as a complaint to the Gender Commission relating to a Minister in the Cabinet. Can we adopt a restorative stance when lodging complaints and calling leaders to account? Absolutely. I’ll publish the papers once finalized

As always, may peace be with you.

4. Featured Mediator

We have had a wonderful response to our featured mediator section every Wednesday. This is for registered ADR Network SA panellists. For further info please email panel@adr-networksa.co.za
