SKU: restorative-practices-schools-behaviour-management Category: Tags: ,

(Thorsborne M and Vinegrad D, teacher resource, 75pp) A ‘just’ school is a place where victims and offenders and their respective communities of care are active participants in processes that ensure equal justice and fairness. Victims are empowered to have their needs met and to have their experience validated. Offenders are able to tell their stories and be given the chance to make amends. And finally, the community of care may seek ways to ensure that the incident does not happen again. This book takes you through the restorative practice process with chapters on: deciding whether to conference or not, conference preparation, convening the conference, managing the emotional dynamics, what if? Appendices and case studies.
