Restoring Peace: Practical Tools for Parents and Families

September 18, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - October 16, 2019 @ 2:00 pm MDT


As we know, parenting does not come with a guide book. Despite all of our best efforts, children are inevitably going to test limits and pose challenges. Over the course of five 2-hour sessions,  Restoring Peace provides parents and caregivers with tools and techniques to navigate the challenges that arise on a daily basis. Along with communication and listening tools, this course includes an exploration of our personal responses to conflict and anger better equipping us to handle conflict when it inevitably arises with our children. 

We approach our parenting course through a Restorative Practices lens. Restorative Practices focuses on strengthening relationships, taking responsibility, and repairing any harm that has been caused. Through this framework, parents gain skills to walk the talk with their own children and impart  the same principles of empathy, responsibility, and respect. 

These classes can be taken as a couple or individual. 

Certification of completion issued on last day of class.

PRICE: $180.00 per person for full 10 hour series.

We welcome full payment on the first night, but do not require it. We do ask for a $50 downpayment on the first class, and for full payment by the third class at the latest. If you anticipate a problem with this payment schedule, please contact Collin Heng-Patton at 303.865.5621 or by email at collin.hengpatton@conflictcenter.org.

We keep our parenting classes small with 6-12 participants in each class. We believe that you learn as much from your peers as you do from your instructors.

If you or the person you are registering receives public assistance (Medicaid, SNAP, TANF, housing assistance, etc.) you may be eligible for a discount. Please call 303.865.5621 to inquire further.

*We welcome court ordered participants to our parenting classes. It is your responsibility to ensure this class qualifies for your particular court order*

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.
