Linda Campbell, Volunteer

I began learning conflict resolution at TCC about 5 years ago. It was immediately apparent what skilled professionals everyone was but more importantly, what kind and thoughtful people they all were. There is a warmth and sense of caring that everyone there possesses that you don’t always see in today’s world. I took a number of conflict resolution classes and then was told that they were starting a Restorative Justice pilot program at Place Bridge Academy and I thought that sounded interesting so I got involved. I volunteered at Place Bridge Academy doing RJ for 2 years and now work doing RJ at another DPS elementary school. I also just started doing RJ with the Denver District Attorney’s office in the criminal justice world. RJ is an amazing process that helps young people learn how to heal the harm and restore relationships following a conflict. It it just what our world needs and I am grateful to The Conflict Center for helping me learn the process and provide this type of leadership in our community.

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.
