For the Facilitator: This course covers the evidence-based Listen & Learn Program curriculum designed by the National Department of Justice Office of Victim Services and Victim Impact Panels.  It provides facilitator training that assists offenders in identifying the impact of crime on victims.  The training identifies program components, provides examples of classroom implementation, presents live victim impact speakers and techniques to promote compassion and empathy in offenders and promotes accountability and making amends.

For the New Victim Impact Panelist:  Fosters understanding of the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy based program offenders complete prior to attending a Victim Impact Panel.  The training provides guidance on sequencing and organizing a VIP presentation.  Affords panelists the opportunity to observe more experienced speakers and determine if this is an appropriate healing opportunity they wish to pursue.  Attendance will assist in promoting relationships between the new and “seasoned” Victim Impact Panelists for valuable support and networking opportunities. 

Who should attend: 

This training is a culmination of two specific groups:

Individuals seeking to implement and facilitate the evidence-based program Listen & Learn or Victim Impact Panels within a secure or all-secure correctional facility for Montana Department of Corrections Offenders.

New Victim Impact Panel Volunteer Speakers or those interested in participating in the healing process afforded by speaking on Victim Impact Panels.
