The International Institute of Restorative Practices (IIRP) Introduction to Restorative Practices is a cost-effective way to achieve lasting change that enhances and builds relationships between students, staff, and parents, improve student behavior, reduce violence and bullying and creates a sense of community.
This professional development is designed to be sustainable with minimum investment after the initial training at the school. The IIRP's training materials, videos, presentations, and evaluations are used to deliver quality training.
DAY 1: INTRODUCTION TO RESTORATIVE PRACTICES:
Learn practical strategies to build strong, healthy relationships with students, families, clients, employees and colleagues. Interactive experiences bring you to a full understanding of the fundamental unifying premise of restorative practices-that people are happier, more cooperative and productive and more likely to make positive changes in their lives when those in positions of authority do things with them rather than to them or for them.
Cost includes: "The Restorative Practices Handbook" and "Restorative Circles in Schools" and lunch both days.
*It is recommended that schools/districts register a small team that will be able to influence the implementation of RP in their setting.
