Restorative Practices Training
Building Community, Restoring Relationships, Repairing Harm
Restorative practices enables us to foster positive relationships, respond to conflicts and problems, and raise consciousness about critical campus issues. This training will introduce participants to the practice and theory of restorative processes and provide opportunities for skill building so that the effective strategies for repairing harm, developing trust, and connecting people can be integrated into your daily work.
- Understand how restorative practices integrate into our work with students: The training will provide an interactive platform for understanding and exploring restorative justice principles.
- Create a community of restorative practitioners: Participants will learn how we will implement restorative justice in our daily work at UMBC, and how it will improve our delivery of services.
- Form connections and enhance current programs and services:
Participants will also be provided with concrete practices and new
skills for effectively collaborating with other stakeholders to initiate
restorative justice effectively.
- Spreading awareness of restorative practices among professional groups and in society
- Changing attitudes within existing networks
- Implementing theory and practice in a variety of campus settings
- Talking with parties and initiating restorative processes effectively
The training will take place on consecutive Fridays, March 31 and April 7, from 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM. Breakfast, lunch and snacks will be provided. Training will take place in the Apartment Community Center on both days.

We understand that two full days is a lot to ask; however, we are confident that this training will be a catalyst that will enable relationships of all types to flourish and assist us in operationalizing the Community Living Principles and other aspirational goals in the Division of Student Affairs.
