Introduction to Restorative Practice (2 virtual 1/2 day sessions)

04 Oct

Trainer: Linda Sayers

This training is an introduction to the approach of Restorative Practices in family, childcare and education settings. It draws a distinction between Practising Restoratively as a way of being, engaging and connecting with people in our lives in ways that maximise the opportunity for connected, empowering and respectful relationships and minimising the likelihood of harmful conflict arising (Session 1). Restorative Practice as an intervention to resolve harm equitably when conflict has occurred will be covered in Session 2.

  • Restorative Practices as a learning journey
  • Mistakes as learning
  • Understanding the Principles & Values of Restorative Practices
  • Accountability, Blame and Shame
  • Behaviour is always communication – so how well are we listening?
  • The four goals of inconvenient behaviour and how to meet them positively
  • Your discipline style and the impact it has on learning

Session 1 - Monday 11th October, 10 - 1pm

  • The Three Pillars of Restorative Practice
  • The Restorative Continuum
  • The Experiential Circle

The course is interactive and draws on the experiences of participants as well as stories and examples of practice from the trainer’s experience.
