As restorative practice continues to evolve it is increasingly important for those working across the sector to augment and enhance their practice. By engaging in Continued Professional Development you have the opportunity to enhance your practice and develop skills to adapt to the changing restorative landscape. 

To support this, we are hosting our first Annual Restorative Practice CPD Symposium which will run between the 27th June and 1st July 2022.

As part of our Connect CPD programme, we are hosting a series of CPD sessions for practitioners at all levels of practice and working in a range of settings. These sessions have been designed to enhance learning and develop new skills.

Over 5 days, you will have the opportunity to participate in 10 CPD sessions (20hrs) covering a range of themes including: 

  • Effective supervision
  • Working restoratively 
  • Restorative leadership
  • Working restoratively with families 
  • Keeping ourselves and others safe

Sessions will be delivered by the Restorative Justice Council alongside an exceptional selection of invited contributors from an extensive range of professions. 

Provisional Programme

Monday 27 June 2022 - Effective Supervision

The theme for Monday's session is effective supervision. During these sessions we will be exploring what makes case supervision effective and how you develop high-quality, safe and productive peer supervision networks. 

Session 1 - Hosted by: Aisa Withey / Jim Simon (RJC)

Effective Case Supervision 

Time: 10am - 12pm 

Platform: MS Teams

This session is suited to practitioners working at intermediate or advanced level. The session will explore what we should expect from each other during case supervision. We will discuss  how we can dig a little deeper, how we can support practitioners to overcome blocks and barriers and how we can encourage reflective practice. 

Session 2 - Hosted by: Rachel Quine (Royal Borough of Greenwich)

Effective Peer Supervision 

Time: 2pm - 4pm

Platform: MS Teams

This session is aimed at all levels of practice and will consider what effective peer supervision could look like. Peer supervision can be an effective form of leaderless support, providing practitioners with a safe space to manage professional problems and reduce stress. During this session we will explore what we can learn from our peers, what should we expect from one another and how best can we support each other. 

 

Tuesday 28 June 2022- Working Restoratively  

The theme for Tuesday is how we can work restoratively with people in a number of different settings. In the first of these sessions we will be focusing on working restoratively with young people in youth justice, education and social care settings. Our second session considers the challenges practitioners may face when working restoratively with people who have additional needs. 

Session 3 - Hosted by: TBC

Working Restoratively with Young People in: 

  • Youth Justice 
  • Education
  • Social Care

Time: 10am - 12pm

Platform: Zoom

During this session we will be exclusively focusing on working restoratively with young people and the differences that may be encountered in the different settings. We will explore the additional complexities and challenges that may come along with this work, specifically the additional factors that need to be taken into consideration like trauma and ACE's. We will also be exploring the use of restorative language and the importance of this when building on our social capital. 

Please Note] This session will be run in three breakout rooms, each room focusing on one sector. All breakout rooms will be recorded and available to view after the event.

Session 4 - Hosted by: Dr Gerard Drennan / Finley Swanepole (SLAM) and Dr Andy Innet (Kent and Medway NHS and Social Care Partnership Trust)

In breakout rooms we will provide opportunities to explore what this means within statutory services such as Youth Justice, Probation, Prisons and commissioned services as well as within educational and social housing contexts. 

Please Note] This session will be run in three breakout rooms, each room focusing on one topic outlined above. All breakout rooms will be recorded and available to view after the event.

 

Thursday 30 June 2022 - Working restoratively with families 

Our theme for Thursday is working restoratively with families. We will be focusing on the wider ripple effect of harm on family, friends and the wider community. We will also explore how we can effectively apply restorative principles and approaches within social care settings. 

Session 7 - Hosted by: Gavin Hudson (Remedi) 

Secondary and Forgotten victims - repairing harm with families/friends and the wider community 

Time: 10am - 12pm

Platform: MS Teams

This session will focus on the wider ripple of harm and the secondary or forgotten victim. Often when people have caused harm, we look at making amends between the people directly affected. But what about those who have been left to pick up the pieces and carry on regardless? The children or partners ostracised in the community or at school or the family struggling to make ends meet when there is only one wage coming in? During this session we will explore the lost time and relationship building that has suffered negative consequences as a result of the harm that has been caused. We'll discuss how addressing and repairing this harm could contribute to a more stable family and friendship circle, the potential to reduce reoffending, ACE's and overall cost to society. 

Session 8 - Hosted by: Rebecca Rushton (Torbay Council) 

Restorative approaches to social care

Time: 2pm - 4pm

Platform: MS Teams

During this session we will explore how we can work restoratively in a social care scenario. This will include parent/child conflict and wider family conflict. We''ll also discuss how restorative language and principles can be used by social care professionals, specifically within face-to-face work with families and individuals, written reports and professional meetings. Finally, we will explore the importance of Multi-agency working and how we can be clear on professional boundaries. 

 

Friday 1 July 2022 - Keeping ourselves and others safe

Our final day, focuses on you as a practitioner. We'll explore how to keep yourself and others safe. We'll discuss how to identify your own triggers, recognise the signs of burnout and vicarious trauma and how share strategies for your own self care.
