Whether we wear the hat of educator, administrator, or social service provider, our commitment is not to punish a child but rather to help a child alter his or her behavior.
Restorative Justice is a theory of practice that restores justice to the victim of an unwanted act, while providing a constructive path forward with integrity restored to the person who has committed the unwanted act. This workshop is based in application of restorative justice, designed for educational and social service professionals who work with challenging children - those who are frequently in trouble at school and appear to be at risk of adverse long-term outcomes. The workshop will address equity versus equality in discipline interventions, providing you tools to use when addressing behavioral incidents. Techniques will be explored to help you develop the relationship with a challenging child that is pivotal in helping them alter behavior and reduce the number of repeat offences. Class size is limit to 35.
