The registration period has closed for this event. 12:00 PM-5:00 PM (each day)

Registration open through 9/24/2021 10:59 PM EST

This three-day training is open to community leaders and educators who want to learn how to use restorative practices to bring peace to Decatur and our surrounding communities as well as help our schools flourish. Participants will learn skills that can be used immediately to strengthen relationships and respond to conflict in classrooms, the community, and organizations.

Day one is an overview of restorative practices where practical strategies will be shared that can be used right away.

Day two is devoted entirely to learning how to facilitate restorative circles. Circles are an essential process for building relationships, resolving social problems, and responding when harm occurs.

Day three focuses on the hallmark of restorative practices - effective responses to incidents of conflict, wrongdoing, or harm. Participants will learn how to facilitate a formal, scripted circle process to address racial incidents, bullying, vandalism, and other serious infractions. Monitoring reactions in stressful situations, listening with empathy, and creating shared understanding among conflicting parties will be some of the skills modeled in this session.
