IIRP professional development imparts practical knowledge and skills you can use immediately in your personal and professional life—whether you are involved in education, criminal justice, social services, counseling, leadership, the pastoral field, volunteer or other work.
Supported by extensive research, restorative practices has demonstrated positive outcomes in a wide variety of settings. We’ve consistently seen proactive circles improve behaviour and decrease bullying and violence in schools, fair process improve workplace morale, a Restorative Conference provide emotional healing for victims and those harmed, and Family Group Meetings/Conferences (FGM/C) enhance family engagement across family services.
You will receive two books, which are related to each one of the days (The Restorative Practices Handbook and Restorative Circles).
Day 1: Introduction to Restorative Practices
Learn practical strategies to build strong, healthy relationships with students, families, clients, employees and colleagues. Interactive experiences bring you to a full understanding of the fundamental unifying premise of restorative practices—that people are happier, more cooperative and productive and more likely to make positive changes in their lives when those in positions of authority do things with them rather than to them or for them.
Day 2: Using Circles Effectively
Circles facilitate conversation and encourage full participation, but there are optimal ways to utilise this process that promote truly meaningful communication. Through video, practice and discussion, participants identify reliable methods for using circles to build community, establish norms and address behaviour and relationships. Useful in any setting from education and other human services to organisational management.
These two days are the first two modules of the IIRP Graduate School's Basic Restorative Practices, 4/5-day cornerstone event.
