Restorative Visitation and Professional Development
Wednesday, 23 September 2015 at 09:00 - Friday, 25 September 2015 at 16:30 (CEST)
See how youth programs achieve success using restorative practices.
Participate in two interactive days learning practical skills and powerful concepts that are the backbone of restorative practices. Then put what you’ve learned in context with a day-long visit to three Oranjehuis restorative programs for youth in Belgium.
Day One: Introduction to Restorative Practices — Through interactive experiences, learn practical strategies to build strong, healthy relationships with students, families, clients, employees and colleagues.
9:00 a.m.—4:30 p.m.
Day 2: Using Circles Effectively — Discover optimal ways to utilize circles to facilitate conversation, encourage full participation and promote truly meaningful communication. Through video, practice and discussion, you will learn how to use circles to build community, establish norms and address behavior and relationships.
Day 3: Oranjehuis visit. —Visit the Oranjehuis programs and attend a presentation by Oranjehuis staff on creating a restorative milieu for youth. Joining this meeting will be Oranjehuis community partners: school, neighborhood and prison workers. The programs include:
• Aura: a restorative school for teens, inspired by Community Service Foundation and Buxmont Academy (the IIRP’s model programs) that employs circles and other restorative processes to build community and address issues.
• Heerlijkheid van Heule: a farming day program for youth who have dropped out of school that engages them with neighborhood volunteers, restoring a sense of community.
• Oranjehuis Residential Program where young people learn to live independently. This visit will take place in the late afternoon/early evening, after the youth have returned from school.
All professional development and meetings will take place in a former monastery on the Oranjehuis grounds, in Kortrik, Belgium.
Professional Development Days (Days 1 & 2) run from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The Visitation Day (Day 3) runs from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Coffee, tea and lunch will be provided each day.
Participants will need to book their own accommodations.
