ProPay 1-2-3: Basic Restorative Practices, Circles and Conferencing - Day One

Overview

Positive proactive restorative practices will help participants learn how to engage with students and adults in ways that keep students in class, and separate questionable deeds from the doer. Supported by extensive research, Restorative Practices has demonstrated positive outcomes in a wide variety of settings. We’ve consistently seen proactive circles improve behavior and decrease bullying and violence in schools, fair practice improves workplace morale and restorative conferences provide emotional healing for victims. This is a way to provide more voice and more choice, in our classrooms, buildings, and personal spaces.

Participants will be able to describe the key concepts of restorative practices, including:

  • Fundamental hypothesis/Social Discipline Window
  • Fair Process
  • Psychology of Affect
  • Restorative Practices Continuum
  • Restorative Conferencing

Target audience

Building staff, preference for classroom teachers and behavior specialists
