Restorative Justice for Educators
School staff and faculty to gain knowledge in the basics of Restorative Practices as well as some tools for implementation in their various institutions.
When implemented across the school, restorative practices can improve school climate, foster a sense of true community, and strengthen relationships. Develop the social and emotional skills of your students by adopting restorative practices as a replacement for punitive approaches to influence the way students behave. In this course, we will learn the practices that address the underlying reasons for students’ behavior and leave with strategies to use with students that built on care, trust and respect.
