  1. Dr. Williams, I am interested in finding out more about your work with Restorative Circles, as this sounds very similar to an idea I had following the recent spate of school violence in Trinidad. In looking at the problems a number of schools in Trinidad and Tobago are facing, I believe solutions should come from a place of peace and mediation and from fundamental changes in the delivery of curriculum as well as a transformation of the curriculum itself. I am currently a teacher, finalising ideas for my own PhD proposal. I look forward to hearing from you.
