Restoring Peace: Practical Tools for Parents and Families

This five week, 10-hour class focuses on providing parents with the tools and skills they can utilize with their children throughout different developmental stages through a Restorative Practices lens. These include: setting boundaries and limitations, listening and responding to show genuine interest/concern, problem-solving, and intentional relationship building. 

‘Restoring Peace’ utilizes the power of empathy to strengthen relationships, while at the same time teaching parents to hold their children accountable for their actions.  After this class, parents will have a solid understanding of the basics of Restorative Practices and how and why to incorporate them into their parenting. At The Conflict Center, we help build a community of support, where parenting challenges are normalized and parents can provide each other with confidence and shared learning experiences.

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.
