Introductory Workshop on Restorative Practices | The Guidance Center of Westchester | samedi, 11. mai 2019
Join WABSE on May 11, 2019 for an introduction to Restorative Practices
“Restorative Practices are a framework for building community and for responding to challenging behavior through authentic dialogue, coming to understanding, and making things right.”
Many schools and communities across the nation are recognizing the importance of fostering positive, healthy school climates and helping students learn from their mistakes. Partnerships with parents, students, district officials, community organizations, and policymakers are working to move away from harmful and counter-productive, zero-tolerance discipline policies. Instead they are moving towards proven restorative approaches to addressing conflict in schools.
Restorative Practices help to build community in schools, strengthen student's social and emotional skills and increase equity.
This workshop will give you an introduction to Restorative Practices and tools you can use to inform your school and communities about the necessary steps to take, in order to start implementing these practices.
