Restorative Approaches

We have a range of Restorative Approaches training courses from 1 day to 3 days and optional series of workshops to embed learning into operational practice. Our training focuses on enhancing the Restorative culture within the operating environment, from frontline officers to senior leadership to ensure sustainability and resilience of the approach.

1 Day overview

A one-day course would act as an introduction and overview of Restorative Approaches. It would provide an:

  • Overview of a restorative approach
  • An introduction to theoretical origins, philosophy and development
  • An overview of use, aims and ethos
  • Explore the impact of implementing Restorative Approaches within your organisation
  • Exploring own practice and learning from each other in order to model good practice
  • Using the restorative questioning principles in a 1-2-1 conversation

 

NB: This one-day introduction does not equip attendees to deliver restorative meetings or conferences. 

3 Day overview

 This course would cover the content in Day 1 but also provide opportunities to practice using the skills and receive structured feedback. Learners consider how to apply RA techniques to their role and how to embed RA into their practice. The course would provide: 

  • An overview of Restorative Approaches
  • An understanding of the theoretical origins, philosophy and development of RA
  • An overview of use, aims and ethos
  • Information on how RA has been applied, in what setting, and information on best practice
  • Explore the impact of implementing Restorative Approaches within their role and within the wider organisation
  • An exploration of learners own practice and learning from each other in order to model good practice
  • Opportunities to use the restorative questioning principles in a 1-2-1 conversation
  • An experiential learning set
  • Development of sequential acquisition of key skills in RA
  • Skill scenarios, role play, discussion and use of case studies and videos
  • Confidence and increased capacity to facilitate restorative dialogue in circles, meetings/conferences. 

Managers Training   

Our experience show that managers are likely to need additional support in order to embed RA into practice in their teams. To supplement the above, we therefore recommend that a complimentary programme is offered to managers and senior leaders to enable RA to be truly embedded and implemented successfully. This can be delivered over a 1-day course or 2-half days. The course will cover a brief version of the 1-day course but will have additional elements on: 

  • The value of RA in leadership
  • Strategy development
  • Models for implementing RA
  • Measuring the impact of RA 

Our training is delivered in accordance with the Restorative Justice Council’s Best Practice Guidance (2011).
