BOOK: Restoring Relationships: a program for middle school students

59 page PDF Manual including access to video media

The Restoring Relationships resource has been designed to introduce some of the basic concepts of restorative problem-solving to middle years students, as they begin high school. If we are intent on school-wide RP  implementation, we need to educate our student body, along with parents and caregivers, about what restorative problem solving actually is and how it works. It will work best if all students in a particular cohort understand the basic principles of the restorative approach, and have an opportunity to develop a degree of conflict competence – to pull back from making snap judgements and assumptions about others, understanding what’s happening for themselves, and knowing some basics about how to have brave conversations to resolve issues. Ruptures in relationships are inevitable – repair is optional. Our hope is that they might settle quickly into the routines of problem-solving in the high school and carry these skills through until they graduate – and beyond.
