Professional Development: Navigating the Circle Forward Building a Restorative Community Handbook

July 26, 2022at1:00 pm

The Circle Forward Book is a key resource for both experienced and developing circle keepers. In this session, teachers, behavior and restorative justice staff, social workers, instructional coaches and deans and other school staff will explore the book and work with selected chapters to understand circle concepts, identify ideas that fit specific needs and gain experience in developing flows for classrooms and staff meetings. Learn to create more innovative, creative and intentional circle flows that meet community needs. Key elements of the circle process for proactive and responsive circle formations will also be a focus of this workshop.

Facilitated by: Mama Makini Niliwaambieni & Lisa Shaw, MS
