Restorative Justice, Social Emotional Learning (SEL), and Mental Health
July 19, 2021at1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
RJ in the Classroom Institute:
Restorative practices are dialogue-based processes that center a community around equitable and inclusive relationships of trust, understanding, and collaboration. These practices, including community building circles, are trauma-informed and provide ample opportunities for social-emotional learning for students, school staff, and families. During this workshop participants will explore how restorative practices can be utilized to provide key mental health and wellness supports and promote SEL learning. Participants will practice and plan community-building circles and other restorative practices in virtual settings, and understand how these practices integrate with and support existing mental health and SEL frameworks, such as Multi-tiered Systems of Support. The workshop is intended for educators, school administrators, and support staff.
