The abstract of the workshop:
Restorative methods in education
Fellegi Borbála, dr., Zsuzsanna Z. Papp
Restorative justice is way of viewing conflicts and human relations in general. It encompasses an approach, a set of principles and practices to address and prevent wrong-doing. In the interactive workshop participants are invited to get familiar with the concept of restorative justice and discuss its potentials in a school environment. Characteristics of restorative questions and dialogues as well as more institutionalized forms of restorative interventions such as circles and conferencing are introduced. With the help of a case study, groupwork and discussions concepts like conflict ownership, engagement, being heard, dialogue, conflict transformation and participatory decision making are discussed.
