Restorative Practices Training

at Boyne Mountain

What are Restorative Practices?

The new field of Restorative Practices is growing rapidly throughout the world in schools, criminal justice, business, and social services...because it works to improve behavior and relationships! This PD will integrate Restorative Practices with authentic Positive Behavior Support and with practical methods for improving academic engagement. It will strengthen your behavior management skills. It will help to bring you and your colleagues closer together around shared values of firmness, respect, and effective problem solving...all in an enjoyable and interactive 2-day session.


The training will be provided by The Christopher & Virginia Sower Center for Successful Schools http://thesowercenter.com.
