A set of positive, evidence-based practices that focuses on developing and strengthening relationships and a sense of community, which then promotes repair of those relationships when harm is done. Restorative practices are aimed at shifting disciplinary practices away from punitive approaches (punishing) and more towards helping repair the harm done to people. Provided by International Institute for Restorative Practices, Restorative practices promote empathy, inclusiveness, relationship-building, and problem-solving. Restorative methods such as circles and restorative conferences bring victims, offenders, and their supporters together to address wrongdoing and repair harm caused to relationships. Participants will learn an overview of the RP foundation, social discipline windows, continuum of RP, and practical everyday interactions with youth.
