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.
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 or organization, conversation and problem solving become the norm and preventative in nature.
Our goal is to make our classes available to everyone who wants to benefit from learning new skills. Not sure if this applies to you? We do not want finances to be a barrier for taking our courses.
