Restorative practice is a term used to describe behaviours, interactions and approaches which help to build and maintain positive, healthy relationships, resolve difficulties and repair harm where there has been conflict. When we work with and alongside people, there is strong evidence to say that outcomes for children and their families are improved.

This 4-day course is suitable for those practitioners who want to develop in depth knowledge of Restorative Practice, including facilitating restorative conversations and restorative meetings. The course content has a large component of skills practice enabling participants to practice using restorative skills and exploring how this links to their own context. Learning resources / tools will be provided to all participants. Sessions run from 9.30 – 4pm and webinar course timings include both online training and a short time off-line for self-directed learning. In person training is used to deliver the second half of the course to support the large skillsbased element of the training. To meet Restorative Justice Council standards, participants are required to complete some reading and reflective tasks to support embedding their practice with the total study time amounting to 24 hours. (A maximum of 4 additional hours above the course attendance). Please do not sign up for this course unless you can commit to attending all 4 days and can be present for the whole course every day. This is essential for completing the course.

The course aims to promote a system wide approach to supporting children, young people and their families by participants developing a better understanding of the relationship between Restorative Practice and improving children and young people's mental health outcomes (as summarised in Future in Mind).
