Introduction to Restorative Practices and Using Classroom Circles Effectively
Introduction to Restorative Practices — Participants will learn practical strategies to build strong, healthy relationships with students, families, clients, employees and colleagues. Activities and visuals will help participants form a better understanding of Restorative Practice’s Fundamental Hypothesis —
“People are happier, more cooperative and productive and more likely to make positive changes in their lives when those in positions of authority do things with them rather than to them or for them.”
Using Circles Effectively — Participants will learn how to conduct restorative circles and identify reliable methods for using circles to build community, establish norms and address behavior and relationships. Participants will be prepared to return to their schools and run their first circle.
Note: Books and materials are provided.
