Support circles are a structured process for engaging students who are struggling, have complex needs, or are returning to the school community after long absence. Support circles bring together the student, family members, relevant school staff, social service providers, and others to provide a web of support to build relationships, identify needs, map resources, make a plan, check in with each other, share accountability, and celebrate successes in their transition to stability. This one-day workshop is designed for intermediate or advanced restorative justice practitioners who have an understanding of restorative justice philosophies and experience as a circle keeper. Participants will learn how to prepare and provide follow-up, as well as understand the structure and skills needed to implement an effective support circle.

Prerequisites: The Restorative Schools Overview, Why Restorative? webinar or similar introductory training is a prerequisite to attending this training. Access the webinar recording.
