Restorative Conflict Resolution
Participants will grapple with age-old questions of behavior guidance. How do we motivate our youth to make positive behavior choices when they really don’t want to! How do we reframe conflict as learning opportunities to deepen our ability to form strong relationships and nurture skill development? By shifting our questions from a focus on ‘what rules were broken’ to ‘who was harmed in our community’ , restorative practices offer a pathway to repair trust and rebuild relationships after conflict. This training builds on the youth development principles of engagement, skill-building, and community involvement. Participants will learn simple and creative strategies to prevent conflict, intervene during the conflict, and restore relationships after conflict.
