WHAT IS RESTORATIVE PRACTICES?
Restorative Practices is an emerging social science that studies the science of relationships and community.
Individuals interested in improving connectedness in any setting, such as, personal relationships, professional workplaces, academic settings, community groups, camps, recreation and leisure clubs, among others, are invited to attend this training to learn more.

• Facilitate circles effectively (classrooms, staff meetings, residence hall meetings, families, etc.) to foster and strengthen a sense of community in your setting
