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.

301 – Sustaining a Restorative School Culture

Focusing on the intervention aspect of restorative practices, especially when conflict arises, we’ll practice the skills required to address situations using an intentional facilitation process. 101 and 201 of the Restorative Practice trainings teach the informal language and dialogue used to create restorative culture and prevent greater harm. 301 picks up when a greater harm has been caused and addressing this harm requires a more intentional facilitation process. This workshop is specifically designed for those who have attended RP101 and RP201, or for those who are looking for formal circle facilitation practice. Ultimately, this session provides attendees with the ability to conduct formal Restorative Practice circles.

You will leave this training confident in the following areas:

  • Formally pre-conferencing students
  • Facilitating a formal circle
  • Following up with students and gaining feedback for greater insight
  • Using restorative language within the facilitation of a formal circle

When conflict happens in the workplace or people experience inappropriate or difficult behavior at work, relationships are damaged and productivity often suffers.
 
Workplaces that embrace Restorative Practices have the potential to create a safer, happier and more effective workplace for everyone. Restorative Practices can be used within the workplace both as a preventative measure and to address conflict when it does arise, enabling teams and individuals to work well together.

Restorative Practices can be an effective way to resolve workplace conflict. It involves:
  • bringing together all those affected by conflict
  • providing a safe environment for the expression of perspective
  • allowing participants to come to a shared understanding
  • identifying creative ways to deal with conflict
  • providing opportunities to rebuild damaged relationships and strengthen teams 

Restorative approaches can also be used proactively within the workplace to build strong, positive relationships. Staff meetings, for example, can be focused on building relationships and based around a foundation of mutual respect.
