Join the accomplished group at National Educators for Restorative Practices to learn how to build a foundation of relationships by implementing our relationship-centered learning model of teaching how to connect with students.
Apply these techniques to strengthen and support relationships proactively, creating a cross-connection between a diverse community of learners before discussing critical conversations surrounding: social and emotional needs, racial equality, cultural differences, diversity, and care for students experiencing trauma.
Acquire the necessary skill set to sustain connections that intentionally focuses on embedding relationship-building into the instructional day to create a moment of genuine connection between students and teachers.
Take a deeper dive by reviewing all of the proactive tools with a protocol, examining barriers with solutions, modifications and accommodations, and tips and strategies.
Restorative Practices are typically associated with Circles. Consider if your classrooms are suffering from Circle Syndrome? Contrast the difference in NEDRP’s GTKY Circle Model versus other community building circle formats and philosophies. Experience over four hours of formalizing, facilitating, and participating in circles, while examining the typical struggles associated with a classroom community building Circle.
Restorative practices have the power to help students self-regulate and make better decisions consciously, but it may require educators to think differently about the behavior and the student. Relate through our Restorative Responsive Tools to help restructure our responses utilizing Restorative Conversations, Restorative Conferences, and Restorative Circles to create opportunities for meaningful accountability and understand how their choices have impacted others in the school community.
Explore the Restorative Re-Entry Process that is intentionally designed to allow students to feel welcome when they return from an exclusionary discipline consequence or placement. The structure focuses on supporting the student's needs, making them feel welcome and valued as they make this adjustment by including critical members from all areas of their lives.
Examine the intersection where Consequences and Accountability CollideSchool administrators are looking for alternative strategies to suspensions while meeting our modern-day students' social and emotional needs. They are stuck with ineffective archaic approaches to traditional discipline but are unwilling to give up on the concept that students must learn a lesson through punishment. Discover and dive into the unique idea of Differentiate Discipline.
"We really enjoyed as a team the practitioner-based strategies, palatable content, and ease of use. This was a wonderful alternative for educators who are turned off by the stricter nature of RP training through other organizations. Presenter was incredibly engaging, knowledgeable, and tireless. To train straight for 3 days is impressive! Our team really enjoyed this training and learned a lot to incorporate into our state system. Our expectations were exceeded."

Formulate a plan to take back to your classroom, campus, or district. Organize the next steps of your journey of implementation or support. Discuss scaffolding and differentiating your restorative practices model while navigating your current campus/district initiatives and needs.
This professional development will not be a sit-and-get with slides read to you. Each participant will be assigned a group led by a Relationship-Centered Facilitator. RCF's groups will enhance professional development by allowing participants to break away from the large group presentation and experience the tools in a smaller group away from the main room. Thus, providing much-needed movement and practice while simultaneously building community with other participants.
