CONNECT IN- Restorative Practitioner

During these workshops we will explore how to develop restorative skills and how to cultivate a restorative mindset using restorative values, intentions and language.  We offer an overview of RP, explore how it consciously builds relationships and outlines an introduction to the restorative questions.  We focus on EQ, on understanding, identifying and transforming difficult emotions such as anger and shame.  We explore the transformative potential of restorative language and how it brings us from shame to empathy and connection.

CONNECT OUT (Meetings) – Restorative Facilitator

During this one day workshop we build on our existing skills and expand our capacity to become a restorative facilitator, supporting others to respond to conflict in a healthier way.  The process of facilitating meetings involves the same language, mindset and values that were explored during Connect In but in this space, we learn structures to apply these skills in new ways.  Facilitating meetings can be especially helpful when working with students, teachers and parents, especially when responding to conflict, harm and bullying.  They promote accountability, empathy and healthy relationships within school communities and beyond!

!Dates coming soon  


CONNECT Out - Restorative Facilitator (Circles)

During these online  workshops, we build on our existing skills from Connect In and expand our capacity to facilitate restorative practices with groups. We develop facilitation skills when using restorative circles using the 1,2,3 Circle Process to proactively model and teach the restorative values and to respond to conflict in a way that honours community and connection.

CONNECT Beyond - Restorative Facilitator (Advanced)

This course is an advanced course for those who have already done the CONNECT IN & CONNECT Out (Circles & Meetings). We develop and reflect on our practice and support each other using case study examples while further enhancing our facilitation skills by exploring the higher end of the restorative practice continuum which may involve higher risk scenarios and require a greater level of expertise to facilitate.
