Whether you are entirely new to Restorative Practice or looking to refresh your knowledge, our Online Training Programme, gives you the opportunity to access training when and where it suits you, at an affordable price. In this training you have the benefit of meeting our restorative practices trainer, Linda Sayers, as she talks and guides you through your skills learning.
This introductory course covers all you need to be able to undertake Restorative Enquiry and Conversations in your school, community or organisation. It has been evaluated by teachers, social workers and parents as having changed their views of conflict and increased their skills to deal with conflict and connect better with their students and children in significant and permanent ways.
In this course you will learn:
The Values and Principles underlying Restorative Practices.
A comparative analysis of the Traditional Model and the Restorative Model of conflict management.
Why shifting from a blame culture to an accountability culture makes sense and how to begin to do this.
We look at behaviour as simple communication and the four messages being communicated with inconvenient behaviour.
How shifting your your lens from "Won't Do" to "Can't Do" will not only increase action to address problems but will also reduce your and your students / children's sense of shame and associated negative behaviours.
The relationship between shame and disrupted development and learning in the classroom, the organisation and at home.
The underlying goals of inconvenient behaviour and how to address these goals so they are expressed conveniently.
How your discipline style has an impact on learning and development of independence.
The Three Pillars of Restorative Practice
Restorative language, blaming and shaming language, restorative enquiry and restorative conversations.
Content of other schools and pupils who had experienced Restorative Practices,
Opportunity to practice the skills,
Opportunity to engage in practice challenges and case studies
Interaction and feedback.
This course pushes you to put this learning into action using exercises to challenge your own thinking and behaviour in resolving conflict. We also look more closely at restorative conferences and circles and what these look like in practice.
