The Center for Dispute Resolution at Maryland Carey Law
proudly presents the
Restorative Practices Workshop
October 28-29, 2014
A 2-day workshop designed for Maryland Public School counselors, social workers, teachers, administrators, or student support staff interested in implementing restorative practices in their elementary, middle, or high school in 2014-2015.
The goal of this two day course is to provide an introduction to restorative practices in school communities. On Day 1, Introduction to Restorative Practices helps participants thoroughly understand restorative concepts and learn effective strategies for managing behavior and teaching young people to take responsibility for their actions. On Day 2, Using Circles Effectively, attendees will learn how to optimally utilize circles in any setting, whether for community-building, problem-solving, addressing disciplinary incidents, teaching content, or strengthening educator communities. The trainings are IIRP-developed and presented by experienced C-DRUM staff members who are licensed IIRP presenters.
