Restorative Approaches: A 3-day training on applying principles of restorative justice

An exciting 3-day training on restorative approaches with Belinda Hopkins. Explore how the values and principles of restorative justice can enhance the way we make, maintain and repair relationships at home, at work and out in the world. (16-18 Jan)

St Ethelburga’s is delighted to be bringing Belinda Hopkins, Director of Transforming Conflict, to offer her unique, three-day introduction to restorative practices.

Come join us in exploring how the values and principles of restorative justice can enhance the way we make, maintain and repair relationships at home, at work and out in the world.

On this short introduction to restorative practice you will:

  • Explore the key values, principles and themes that underpin all restorative engagement
  • Learn how to transform relationships by addressing difficult conversations, conflicts, bullying, challenging, anti-social and criminal behaviours as well as low-level disruption in a consistently positive way
  • Develop restorative responses that can reduce the use of, and the need for, punitive responses whilst still offering closure to all those affected
  • Practice running circle processes to help build a sense of community amongst young people and/or staff teams, to develop trust and mutual respect, and to enhance confidence and problem-solving skills

 Who should attend?

The focus of this course is on engagement – how we interact with others in our lives – whether at work, in our families, in our communities and in the world at large. The values, principles and skills are generic and so it will be fascinating to learn from each other about how we might apply what we have learnt. There is no specific target group for this course – our diversity will add depth and richness to the course.

Please note that places on this course are limited and early registration is highly encouraged.  Register before 15 Dec to receive our Early Bird discounted rate.
