In today’s schools, care for the person/s harmed through misbehavior is rarely addressed in intentional ways. Misbehavior is punished leaving the student to feel disconnected from school and at times also feeling like a victim. When misbehavior is not addressed in a restorative manner the focus of academic learning is broken. Working through Restorative Practices, misbehaving students deal with the harm they have caused to individuals and to the school community. An understanding of the harm done and a restoring of safety or relationships starts to happen and the emphasis of learning in a caring environment can resume. The goals of Restorative Practices apply not only to those involved in or affected by misbehavior, but to the larger educational community as well.

Key Goals of Restorative Practice:

  • To understand the harm and develop empathy for both the harmed and the harmer
  • To listen and respond to the needs of the person harmed and the person who harmed
  • To encourage accountability and responsibility through personal reflection within a collaborative planning process
  • To reintegrate the harmer (and, if necessary, the harmed) into the community as valuable, contributing members
  • To create caring climates to support healthy communities
  • To change the system and why it contributes to the harm

Day 1—Participants will have an understanding of: Restorative Practices—where its roots are from and how it is being used today. Punishment vs. Restoration—Where are you on the discipline continuum?  The four paned window of conduct. Values and Concepts of a Restorative School Environment—How does your school check out?

Day 2—Participants will have an understanding of the “practices” in Restorative Practice and how they fit into a continuum (think triangle in PBIS) —Types of Restorative Practice: Reintegration following suspensions, Class meetings, Circles, Conferencing, Truancy mediation, Bullying
