I had to kick down a door in my apartment since it was locked from the inside. I'm not handy; step-by-step instructions for repairing damage to the door and frame?

The door to my bedroom has a twist-lock knob on the inside, and a keyhole knob (no pinhole release) on the outside--I've never had a key. The inevitable happened and the door got pulled shut with nobody inside. I've never been good at lockpicking
, so I wound up kicking the door to get in.
The wood around the lock in the door is pretty splintered, but no pieces are missing. The bit in the frame is still in place too, but a little out-of-whack.
Instructions for fixing the damage?
