Childhood Development Initiative Restorative Practices Training      

 Are you interested in having stronger and happier relationships in your school, family, workplace and your community, and in being able to resolve conflict positively?  If you are, then read on!

Restorative Practice (RP) is both a way of being and a set of skills for building strong relationships and resolving conflict in a simple and emotionally healthy manner. Restorative practices help us develop and sustain strong and happy families, schools, workplaces and communities by:

  • Actively developing good relationships;
  • Stopping conflict escalating out of control; and
  • Repairing harm caused by serious wrongdoing.

When you are using RP you are intentionally choosing to connect with people and actively promoting UNDERSTANDING and EMPATHY between people. You have HIGH EXPECTATIONS of yourself and others and you provide SUPPORT to yourself and others to meet those expectations. And you do things WITH others in a FAIR and RESPECTFUL way.

CDI’s Getting Started with Restorative Practices training course takes place over six sessions each session is 2 hours delivered Online via zoom.  This training explains what restorative practices are and how the whole RP approach works. The training provides

  • An overview of the origins and development of RP;
  • The evidence of outcomes that can be expected from adopting RP; and
  • An outline of the skills and strategies that are used when taking a restorative approach in our life.

When you have done this short course, you will be able to:

  • Use Restorative Language – this is a way of talking that promotes empathy and understanding between people. Using restorative language helps us to build relationships and to stop conflict getting out of hand;
  • Have Restorative Conversations – these are conversations we have if we have a problem with another person when either they have let us down or we have let them down. Sorting the problem out restoratively prevents conflict from escalating and really helps with keeping the relationship healthy; and
  • Facilitate restorative circles to actively improve classroom relationships.

Facilitators

Joe Power works as Restorative Practices Development Officer for Limerick (part-time) and is also a Restorative Justice worker with Le Cheile (part-time). With over four years experience in the field he helps implement the restorative ethos and practices at all levels, from schools to residential and youth settings, right up to working with young offenders in the criminal justice field".

groups, to large classes in an inner-city school.

She has been involved with Cuidiú, the national organisation for mothers and babies since 1997, and became a volunteer Breastfeeding Counsellor within the organisation in 1999. In 2010 she trained and began to work as a tutor for Breastfeeding Counsellors in the community. She has been President of Cuidiú since 2018. 

After discovering Non Violent Communication in 2006, she started using the techniques and practices in school and in her breastfeeding counselling.  She has attended workshops, courses and regular practice groups.

Through her knowledge of NVC, she developed an interest in Restorative Practices, first using circles in class in 2011.  In 2014 she completed the summer course for teachers and trained as a trainer the following autumn.

Since May 2018 she has been training groups on behalf of CDI, supporting new trainers and working with CDI to connect with interested parties.

She recently participated in her first AVP workshop in Mountjoy prison and is looking forward to more.

Nicola is passionate about RP, particularly in its impact on students and teachers, and its potential for resolving conflict and reducing harm in communities.

Interestingly, its not just the child's regulation skills that can cause problems but also the parent and teachers regulation skills that can also cause problems! This course will teach how self regulation is effected in the ADHD brain and show you the role that you will can play in supporting them. The course will present a number of different regulation strategies and techniques which can be used at home and in school to support the ADHD child.
