International Bullying Prevention Conference
 
Restorative Practices

Speaker
Lee Rush, M.Ed., Executive Director, justCommunity


Description
This workshop will explore the application of using the “restorative practices” in a school or community setting. Restorative Practices (RP) include not only a philosophical set of beliefs but also include a range of both proactive (preventative) approaches to build community and reactive (responsive) responses to “wrong-doing”. This workshop will also describe and demonstrate practices along the RP continuum including affective statements, questions, conversations, circles and formal conferences. Learn how to (re)think traditional responses to disruptive classroom behavior, student-to-student disagreements and even staff to staff conflicts. (Lunch on your own, 11:30 am – 12:45 pm)
