Restorative justice in schools continues to gain momentum across the US and abroad as schools recognize the limitations and challenges of punitive discipline and strive to create equitable, inclusive, and trauma-informed communities. During this half-day training, participants will gain an understanding of the various applications and practices of restorative justice in schools on all three tiers (prevention, intervention, and restoration), explore the need for and impact of restorative justice in schools, learn about a model for successful implementation, and engage in experiential activities and group discussion. Further training is recommended for those interested in facilitating restorative justice processes. 

This workshop will be taught by guest presenters Raphi Miller and Cara Walsh who have extensive experience in this field.
