Introduction to Restorative Practices
Start: Monday, July 29, 2019• 9:00 AM
End: Tuesday, July 30, 2019• 4:00 PM
From day one, you will learn a range of strategies you can use every day. You will learn how to set high expectations while being supportive. You will practice how to provide direct feedback and how to ask questions that foster accountability. You will also learn the most effective methods to resolve common conflicts.
We devote the second day entirely to teaching attendees to facilitate restorative circles. Circles are an essential process for building social capital, resolving social problems and responding when harm occurs. Circles create a positive learning environment. You will learn by participating in circles with other attendees, taking turns to learn how to facilitate. By the end of the day, you will be prepared to return to your setting and run your first circle!
