Restorative Conversations: A Responsive Restorative Practice
In this workshop, we will learn and practice the skill of facilitating one-on-one restorative conversations as a responsive restorative practice for addressing harm. Through experiential means, we will...
Explore how self-awareness and monitoring our internal reactions can make conflicts bigger or smaller in interactions with young people (or adults!)
Discuss and apply listening and questioning techniques as a vehicle for relationship building and repair, reentry from crisis, and resolving personal and inner conflict.
Practice holding effective restorative conversations using Umoja's questioning tool to internalize skills.
Restorative conversations are applicable in a wide variety of spaces with both adults and young people, but educators and youth development professionals will find this session particularly relevant and useful for de-escalating and resolving conflicts with young people and adults.
Please join us for coffee and networking at 8:15am, and then engage in an interactive and meaningful session with colleagues from across the region! Registration will remain open until 3/08/19 Space is limited, so please register soon! If you have questions, please email at pd @ umojacorporation.org.
Please Note: In order to make our workshops available to a broad and diverse audience, we are using a sliding scale payment model, which means you choose how much you pay. Paying at the lowest level is like receiving a scholarship, while paying at the highest level helps us cover the true cost of the workshop and helps make our sliding scale possible. Thank you for considering your situation and resources as you choose your registration level!
