Facilitating Restorative Conferences

Tuesday & Wednesday,
May 4 - 5, 2021
The CCIU will host the IIRP for two full days focused on developing and facilitating a formal, scripted circle process to address racial incidents, bullying, vandalism and other serious infractions. Participants will learn the steps required to conduct a restorative justice conference, from determining the readiness of victims, offenders, their families and friends to participate, to running the formal meeting itself.

Whether or not participants are directly responsible for conducting conferences, all workshop attendees will learn how to better address everyday conflict and incidents in the workplace and community.

Skills taught include: 
  • Monitoring personal reactions in stressful situations
  • Listening with empathy
  • Creating shared understanding among conflicting parties
Beneficial for superintendents, central office administrators and teacher leaders.
