Restorative Justice, Social Emotional Learning (SEL) & Mental Health
February 5, 2022at10:00 am - 12:30 pm
Target Audience: School Staff, Teachers
This session runs from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. with an optional planning hour from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Restorative practices are dialogue-based processes that center a community on 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. Join us to explore how to use restorative practices to provide mental health and wellness supports and promote social-emotional learning. Participants will practice and plan community-building circles and other restorative strategies for in-person and virtual settings and understand how these practices integrate with and support existing mental health and social-emotional frameworks, such as Multi-Tiered Systems of Support.
All professional development sessions use a trauma-informed approach and teach skills and practices that you can implement immediately. We highly encourage participants to join our weekly coaching sessions for a deeper dive into the challenges of implementation and practice. All Spring 2022 sessions will be held virtually on Zoom.
