201: Implementing Restorative Circles in Your School

October 17, 2019 @ 3:00 am - 10:00 am MDT


What are restorative practices?

We define Restorative Practices as a process by which an individual acknowledges wrongdoing, takes steps to repair harm and is welcomed back into the community. This, in effect, fosters a culture that elevates dialogue and values relationships.


201 – Implementing Restorative Circles in Your School

With an emphasis on prevention and the development of RP language, we’ll learn to use restorative practices skills to develop collaborative norms, learn how and why to run proactive circles, how to use affective statements & reframing and how to address conflict in the moment. By implementing restorative practices in the everyday culture of a school, conversation and problem solving become the norm and preventative in nature. This course is geared toward education professionals who will be establishing relationships within a school and managing a group of students or peers.

You will leave this training confident in the following areas:

  • Facilitating proactive circles
