Basic Restorative Practices and Using Circles Effectively is the toolbox that every practitioner needs. Restorative Practices uses indigenous circle processes combined with social science to create a culture of community, respect, and grace. This learning experience allows participants to reflect on how they respond to negative behavior, recognize their default responses to negativity, while being left able to understand others when they exhibit aggressive, emotional, or withdrawn behavior. The use of emotional psychology allows individuals to create a change within themselves which allows them to be more cognizant of how they treat others and respond to negative experiences. Restorative practice is a proactive approach to creating and maintaining a restorative culture in your organization. Restorative practices can be used to build connections, team building, problem-solving, discussion, understanding, response to incidents meeting facilitation, etc. This is a must have learning experience for anyone in the industry of serving people.
Restorative Conferencing, also known as Restorative Justice, is the reactive portion of the restorative process. Restorative conferencing uses indigenous peace-making practices to change how we respond to crime and wrongdoing. Restorative Conferencing allows each party to be a part of the healing process while involving a community of support for those harmed and those that caused harm. Restorative Conferencing is the end of punitive discipline measures. It allows individuals to ask, “What happened to you? What do you need?” instead of the reprimanding and offering punitive consequences. Restorative Conferencing allows for group decision making, relieving the pressure from one person, allowing the community to come together for restoration and resolution. Restorative Conferences promote community and offer resolutions to situations that need healing, understanding, empathy, and love. Upon completion of this learning experience participants will be able to implement restorative conferences immediately.

Cultural inclusion and sensitivity do not start and stop with race. Culture encompasses beliefs, values, and traditions that can vary between racial and ethnic groups, as well as geographic regions. This professional development opportunity will consist of interactive sessions that will use indigenous circle processes to guide individuals in recognizing, reshaping, and reconciling their views on race, culture, and privilege. This learning experience covers the topics of racial identity development, bias, microaggressions, privilege, and creating conscious change. These sessions will allow individuals the opportunity to examine their own experiences, and how these views have shaped how they view others as well as interact with those around us through our socialization process/experiences. These sessions are meant to build connection, empathy, and allow for self-reflection. The session will use lecture, video, and reflection/discussion using circle processes.

These sessions are meant to build connection, empathy, and allow for self-reflection. Join us as we go on a journey of discovery and exploration of ourselves while understanding the experiences of others.
