The Restorative Practitioner
Explore the full range of restorative practices with the IIRP, world leader in the field.
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, counselling, leadership, the pastoral field, volunteer or other work. The skills you learn in these four days will strengthen your ability to help others handle their own issues and achieve their own goals.
Restorative Practices processes help to proactively and positively build, maintain and strengthen existing relationships, thereby building social capital. Supported by extensive research, restorative practices has demonstrated positive outcomes in a wide variety of settings. We’ve consistently seen better behaviour and decreased bullying and violence in schools, improved workplace morale, reduced recidivism in juvenile and criminal justice and enhanced family engagement in social services.
You will receive four books, each related to one day of the event.
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.
Day 3: Facilitating Restorative Conferences
Instructional videos and in-depth experiential activities teach you to facilitate a restorative conference, in which everyone impacted by wrongdoing can share how they have been affected and have a say in how to repair the harm. This formal circle is used to address negative incidents and fosters more positive outcomes than mere punishment, in education, criminal justice, youth work, organisational and other settings.
Day 4: Family Engagement & Empowerment
Learn how to engage and empower families through formal and informal strategies that help families develop solutions to their own problems. Participants will learn about formal family group conferences (FGCs), also known as family group decision making (FGDM) conferences, which are helpful to anyone working with families, including social workers, educators, probation or corrections officers, clergy and others.
N.B. - These books are all in English and the course will be presented in English.
