What is it?
Trauma impacts the way in which we interact with each other and can lead to harm in our relationships. But what we usually don’t consider is that we can often restore those relationships! And there are many reasons why working to restore those relationships can be so valuable! This training will look at how Restorative Practices can be used as a tool to repair relational harm and resist retraumatization.
What will the attendee take away from this event?
Participants will learn about historical and current impacts of traditional discipline and how it has been used to address adverse human behaviors, often resulting in more harm and trauma. Restorative practices are an effective alternative to traditional discipline and a healing response to trauma. Effective approaches and strategies for implementing restorative practices with your clients/participants/employees/community members will be practiced and shared.
Who should attend?
Restorative Practices are beneficial in many societal systems and at many levels, this training will focus on restorative practices in a community support context.
It is recommended for;
- Behavioral support staff
- Nonprofit and community workers
- Educators and their administrators
- People who work in child and youth development and family programs
- HR personnel who would like to implement alternative ways of addressing employee conflict
