There is growing evidence that punitive discipline systems, beliefs, and practices are failing our young people. These methods do not teach youth how to deal with conflict in healthy ways, lead to improved outcomes, or create strong relationships. Wholesale changes that shift to more effective alternatives than retributive justice and promote healing and empowerment are needed.
Seeing your work through a restorative lens will jumpstart that critical mind shift on both personal and organizational levels. Shifting to a restorative framework will improve your interventions and give youth tools they can practice and utilize in spaces that aren’t set up to empower them. You’ll have a stronger foundation for more effective communication and be better prepared to deal with your own discomfort, particularly in conflict situations.
This training will ground you in the basics of restorative practices. You’ll learn why restorative justice is so vital to building systemic equity. You’ll also develop plans for addressing the behavior challenges that bring you the most discomfort in your daily work. You can’t dismantle generations of punitive mindsets in a two-hour training, but you can be awakened to the realities of the work ahead and gain tools to help youth believe in their capacity, self-worth, and voice.
- Explore the basic elements of restorative practices
- Understand each element of the Restorative Practices Continuum and why they are important to system-wide equity in discipline
- Learn how to use context to determine which restorative practice(s), at minimum, should be applied to address particular behavior challenges
- Examine what adult or youth behavior challenges give you the greatest amount of discomfort to address
- Understand how past and present culture, politics, and policy inform why restorative work is so vital today
