Restorative Readiness Training
April 14th from 8:30AM – 3:30PM EST
Empower educators with a community-driven approach that is equity centered and based on applied neuroscience and trauma-informed practices
Has your school seen a dramatic rise in student behavioral and mental health needs? Educators and parents across the country are observing an increase in regression, dysregulation, and connection-seeking behaviors that are disrupting learning environments and are also contributing to teacher burnout. Traditional fear and shame-based classroom management and school child-blaming strategies likely will not work to turn these behaviors around. While they sometimes appear to create short term results towards ‘compliance,’ they end up harming the relationships between students and educators and the school climate as a whole.
Participants will leave with an understanding of how discipline should be used as a teaching tool, not fear-based compliance. We will learn how restorative practices can build sustainable, proactive approaches centered in relationships and responsive strategies for classroom and office behaviors. We will also dig into models that use powerful but simple strategies to create sustainable results with severe behavior needs that can be used in both the classroom and in the home.
