Restorative Practices

Restorative practices (RP) focuses on creating strong relationships. This is the starting point for healthy communities. RP promotes a high level of responsibility and support to create safe, fair schools. RP uses a range of practices, including the following, for building community and fixing broken relationships:

  • Restorative language
  • One-on-one restorative conversations
  • Community-building circles
  • Repairing harm circles
  • Community conferences

 

Principles of Restorative Practices

The following values are important for creating a restorative setting:

  • Building relationships creates healthy communities
  • Repairing harm from conflicts improves relationships
  • Focus is on each individual's needs
  • All voices are heard and valued
  • Shared problem solving is used
  • People do things with  others instead of to  or for  them
