Restorative Relationships and Resources

Audience: Classroom Teachers K-12, Administrators, Directors, Social Workers, Behavior Intervention

Facilitators: Sarah Miller and Malik Peer, Diversity Equity Outreach Consuliting, LLC

Restorative Resources are designed to give educators the tools to create Restorative Relationships. Research has shown that when students and teachers experience authentic nurturing relationships, attendance improves, discipline becomes more equitable and less frequent, teacher satisfaction increases, and ultimately academic success becomes more likely. During this session participants will enhance their relationship building skills by understanding the theory behind restorative practices and learning how to implement proactive and restorative circles, affective statements and restorative questioning.

Day One: The Power of the Circle

Participants will learn about the history, relevance, and power of using circles within the classroom and school settings. Everyone will engage incircles and learn how to effectively use academic and non academic circles to build a trusting learning community wherea all students feel a sense of belonging.

Day Two: Understanding the Psychological Foundation of Restorative Relationships

Participants will spend time learning the foundational psychology in which restorative practices was built upon: the social discipline window, fair process, 9 Affects, the compass of shame, and the restorative continuum. Educators will be encouraged to be reflective and interactive during our time together.

Day Three: Implementing Restorative Resources

During this training participants will be learning various resources available to repair harm when wrongdoing has occured. We will also take a deeper dive into understanding sources of conflict and restorative ways to manage conflicts when they arise.
