October Restorative Practices Virtual Training Series

October 8, 2020 @ 12:30 pm - October 22, 2020 @ 5:00 pm MDT

$199 – $425

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.


Day 1: 101 – 5 R’s of Restorative Culture: An Intro to Restorative Practices in Schools

Introductory training designed to provide a baseline understanding of the pillars of RP, fundamental practitioner skills and insight on why it is needed to help transform school and community culture.

Training Objectives

  • Review the history, values, theory and applications of Restorative Practices.
  • Identify the 5Rs that make up the foundation of restorative culture.
  • Learn strategies to create buy-in for implementing Restorative Practices within your school
  • Dive into the Restorative Practices Continuum (i.e. affective statements vs. formal conferences)
  • Practice using the appropriate restorative strategy in different situations.

Day 2: 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.

This training focuses on…

  • Facilitating proactive circles
  • Creating group agreements and setting norms within circles
  • Building skills and competencies for restorative language
  • Creating affective statements and questions
  • Reframing inflammatory statements
  • Implementing strategies to general awareness and empathy of students


Day 3: 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.


This training focuses on…

  • 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
