In bringing Restorative Justice/Restorative Practices to schools, I hope to bring preventative strategies in working with children, families and staff. One of the strategies that can be useful is a Circle, i.e. a structured dialog process that builds connections and empathy, while honoring the uniqueness of each child. Circles are safe spaces for each child to be heard with compassion, caring and respect. It is an opportunity for each participant to speak his/her truth respectfully and work towards a resolution or greater understanding.
