Restorative Discipline in Schools. Why should I bother? 

An exploration of Restorative Justice, suspension, and building staff and community “buy-in”

Course Description

Restorative Justice, Restorative Practices, Circles, alternatives to Punitive Justice are all becoming common terms in schools, but there is still a whole lot of confusion around what these systems, programs and practices are and how they may impact your schools and districts. This webinar is designed to demystify Restorative Practices and approaches while helping you make sense of how these practices can be used within a framework to reduce discipline and more effectively address conflict and harm. You will learn key concepts and frameworks for explaining what Restorative Practices are and how they can impact your school. In addition, your webinar host will provide tips on how to build buy-in with teachers and administrators while also providing you with steps to ensure that you use restorative practices to both prevent and respond to conflict. Our webinar hosts have a surplus of experience implementing restorative practices in small and large districts, government agencies, nonprofits, and tech companies and will use their wealth of knowledge to help you enhance your community or workplace.
