Restorative Practices refers to a philosophy and set of tools that strengthen relationships between individuals as well as social connections within communities. Restorative practices can create space for individuals to learn from each other, build relationships across differences, and dialogue about difficult topics.
Large group sessions will be recorded, but Restorative Circles will be private conversations.
