The Conflict Center is at the forefront of introducing Restorative Practices into Colorado schools.
We define Restorative Practices as a process by which an individual acknowledges wrongdoing, takes steps to repair harm, and is welcomed back into the community. This, in effect, fosters a culture that elevates dialogue and values relationships.
This introductory workshop provides attendees with a fresh perspective as well as knowledge about how Restorative Practices can transform any situation.
You will leave this training confident in the following areas:
History, values, theory and applications of Restorative Practices.
The 5Rs that make up the foundation of restorative culture.
Strategies to create buy-in for implementing Restorative Practices within your school
The Restorative Practices Continuum (i.e. affective statements vs. formal conferences)
Understanding the appropriate restorative strategy to use in different situations.
Breakfast and light snacks provided. One hour designated for lunch. Feel free to bring your lunch or we can suggest favorite nearby places to grab a bite to eat.
