This session is a deep dive into the underlying concepts and principles that distinguish the restorative approach. Concepts covered include:

  • Power and the impacts of ‘power over’ vs. ‘sharing power’

  • The relational foundation for work with others

  • The role of emotional intelligence

  • Engagement through “fair process”

  • The consequences of shame and shaming

Using theses concepts as a foundation for practice increases effectiveness in one’s work.
