PD: Restorative Responses to Behavior

January 25at4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Target Audience: Administrators, Teachers, School Staff, Behavioral Support

This session will build your capacity to practice a restorative response to behaviors in school. Through a 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, including affective statements and restorative questions. Throughout the workshop, facilitators will demonstrate the concept 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 those biases impact consistent outcomes. All professional development sessions use a trauma-informed approach and teach skills and practices that you can implement immediately.
