Restorative practices is an emerging social science that studies how to strengthen relationships between individuals as well as social connections within communities, whether it is at school or at home. FHPS staff members have been trained in restorative practices, and now we would like to share the information with our families. More specifically, you will learn:
- What is restorative practices?
- Is restorative practices the same thing as restorative circles?
- How is it being used in the schools?
- How are children benefiting from this?
- How can I as a parent or caregiver use similar strategies at home with my family?
- Why is this important?
