Restorative Responses to Behavior
July 26 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
RJ and Student Behavior Institute:
This workshop is designed to build the capacity of school leaders, teachers, and support staff to practice a restorative response 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 using Restorative Communication (Affective Statements/ Restorative Questions). Throughout the workshop, facilitators will demonstrate the concepts of Fair Process, an inclusionary practice that allows staff and students to be actively involved when there has been harm to the community. Participants will consider their biases in their responses to student behavior and recognize how it impacts consistent outcomes.
