    Restorative Justice Circle Training

    Registration required: https://resolutionsnorthwest.org/events/circletraining-2/

    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.

    Introduction to Restorative Justice in Schools
    Northwest Health Foundation, 221 NW 2nd

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

    Wednesday and Thursday, Jan 17th and 18th, 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.
