Originally a practice taken from the Maori tribes of New Zealand Restorative Justice is now being used globally in schools, prisons, work places, by teachers, social workers and counsellors.

In this session, you will be given a practical introduction to the use of these two methods of restorative practice. All too often we see that a punitive approach to bullying not only fails to prevent further incidents but often can cause retribution from the offender, only making the problem worse. Restoration Justice or RJ for short is a tried and tested method seeks to create empathy in all parties and resolve the underlying causes of negative relationships. Shared Concern is a similar technique that is more specifically used when you have a group of students who are bullying one student. Again, it seeks to create a support network from what was once the exact opposite.

After this session you will have the tools you need to start to implement these two practices in your school community.

You will understand the basic theory behind both methods and be able to lead these sessions in your school community.
