Utilizing a dialogue model for racial equity, participants will learn how Restorative Practices can serve as prevention and intervention measures, helping schools to build relationships among students, staff, and parents. Participants will experience a community building circle and leave with the tools to use Restorative Practices to increase pro-social skills and resiliency in individuals. The session will describe how to use culturally responsive behavioral interventions and support structures.
