August 5, 2021at1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Independent PD’s: Building Community (Staff Engagement, Parents and Families, Students)(Helping Navigate Chaotic Re-entry to School):
Restorative Justice is more than a process to repair relationships between people after a harm. It is a way of living and relating that focuses on “how we care about each other.” It is a healing-centered approach drawn from ancient indigenous cultures that supports widening tolerance and welcoming what is also painful: the losses, the disappointments, the hurts. It brings people together to remember how to be healers and helpers to each other. In this workshop, we will learn how restorative practices can increase a culture of care towards those who may be grieving. We will explore how to widen our capacity to confront sadness and disappointment, and learn about the turnaround journey of resilience inviting people back to hope. Objectives of this workshop are: 1) examine the five stages of grief and introduce the concept of ambiguous grief; 2) practice how to address these feelings in others and ourselves; and 3) demonstrate how to build community and resilience.
