This workshop is designed to build capacity of school leaders, teachers, and support staff in their approach to behaviors in school. Through the restorative lens, participants will explore various techniques and strategies to effectively communicate with students when they disrupt community norms or expectations. Participants will gain skills and tools to de-escalate students in heightened situations by using Restorative Communication (Affective Statements/ Restorative Questions). Throughout the workshop, facilitators will demonstrate the concepts of Fair Process, an inclusionary practice that allows for staff and students to be actively involved when there has been harm to the community, and participants will consider their biases in their response to student behavior and recognize how it impacts consistent outcomes.
The target audience for this training is for educators and support staff working in pre-K through grade 12 schools.
