Institutional Equity: Tools and Frameworks for Leaders
Resolutions Northwest

Registration required: https://resolutionsnorthwest.org/events/institutional-equity-4/


By the year 2042, white people will become a minority in the United States of America. The context of the world is changing radically, and we are living the response to those changes in our communities and our workplaces.

This training intends to empower individuals to take leadership, wherever you are, to ensure that the response to the cultural shift in our country is responsible, healthy, and just.

“This training has been so valuable for me and I will take these lessons with me for the rest of my career.”

People of any level of experience are welcome. The training will be highly interactive and will invite each of us to move through challenges and discomfort toward engagement, connection, and action.

As individuals, and an organization, that are continually striving to “walk our talk” around equity, Carlos and Teri invite you to join us for this training in the spirit of mutual exploration.

Introduction to Restorative Justice in Schools
through Resolutions Northwest

Explore why and how Restorative Justice can be a promising alternative to exclusionary practices.

Monday and Tuesday, June 26th and 27th, from 9:00am – 4:00pm

“It was a great balance of circle, lecture, group work and movement. The topic had me 100% engaged.”

Restorative Justice is a valuable alternative to exclusionary practices. It seeks to restore community and repair harm while holding all involved accountable. Unacceptably high school push-out rates disproportionately affect students of color, students with disabilities and youth who identify as LGBT.

Restorative Justice is not a prescribed program but a philosophy based on community building and repairing harm. We will discuss the components that can make the approach successful such as circles, restorative inquiries and dialogues, community service and mediation. We look at possibilities for implementation that are open to classroom teachers and other school personnel. While doing so we will keep a keen eye on equity issues. The workshop will be a combination of lecture, discussions, videos and hands-on practice activities.

This training focuses on Restorative Justice in schools. We particularly invite and encourage school counselors, behavior specialists, administrators, teachers, security personnel, and those studying to work in schools.

Fight, flee, flop – or flip? Transform conflict through Aikido
Two Rivers Aikikai

Put the experience of mindful conflict resolution into your body!

When conflicts arise – perhaps racism comes up, a co-worker pushes our buttons, or we’re embroiled in family dynamics – most of us have a default setting, and it’s not necessarily the most helpful one. In this workshop, we will explore how to become more mindful in those moments so we can choose a response that is more aligned with our values and the outcomes we want to achieve. We will include physical exercises to help you access a deeper level of learning.

Aikido is a traditional Japanese martial art with the ultimate goal of convincing humanity that violence is not an effective means of improving society. While this is not a martial arts class, it is grounded in our belief that the lessons of Aikido can help people develop a centered, balanced and sensitive human spirit.

No martial arts experience is required. We work with participants to adapt each exercise to your own level of mobility and comfort (or you can learn by observing if you prefer).

Understanding Trauma and Building Resiliency
through Resolutions Northwest

Register here: https://resolutionsnorthwest.org/events/trauma-resiliency/

Trauma is a biological rather than a pathological response, and the body has an innate capacity to heal and restore itself. This workshop will focus on the impact of trauma and how resiliency can be restored using a skills-based approach. Participants will be introduced to the Community Resiliency Model developed by the Trauma Resource Institute and have an opportunity to practice the skills. Learn to take a resilience-oriented approach to Trauma Informed Care, moving beyond information to neuroscience-based ACTION. Gain practical skills to build greater capacity for self-regulation and self-care.

This training is for anyone interested in learning more about trauma-informed care and how to incorporate skills for well being into their personal and/or professional lives – whether for themselves or for those they support.

LOCATION CHANGE! Now at The Rosewood Initiative

Registration required: https://resolutionsnorthwest.org/events/circletraining/


Bringing restorative circles into your setting – whether school, program, agency, or organization – can be a very effective way to build relationships and create a strong community, and serves as the foundation for dealing with more challenging issues as they arise. In this day-long Circle Facilitation Training we will introduce community building circles, provide experiential opportunities to plan and model, and share circle facilitation tips. We will talk about components and stages of a circle and about how to address challenges. Based on participants’ needs, we may also examine specific circles, such as re-entry circles for community members who have been excluded previously.
