Restorative practices are a means of resolving conflicts in a non-adversarial, non-retributive manner in which the offender is held accountable and the person harmed is given a significant voice. The most extreme end of the restorative practice spectrum is the Justice Circle that can deal with a multitude of situations from bullying to criminal matters.

You should attend this workshop if you routinely deal with conflicts and you wish to do so in a manner that invites cooperation rather than animosity.

This training is suitable for everyone.


Learning objectives

  1. Understand the biology, sociology and psychology behind restorative practices
  2. Use the core questions used in the restorative practices approach
  3. Facilitate a restorative Justice Circle
