Description

Restorative Practices

Principles and strategies for helping friends, families, and neighbors restore relationships

-- Mary Cline-Stively, Director of Programs at ChildStrive.

The NEAR Collaborative for Action is pleased to present the topic: Restorative Practices.

Trauma and childhood adversity: We understand the science and we recognize the urgency – but what can we do now? This question summarizes a reoccurring theme previous ACEs Quarterly events.

Though we all possess a measure of innate resilience, it is often further nurtured by safe, stable and caring relationships throughout childhood. So, if healthy, supportive relationships are at the core of our ability to bounce back, what do we do when those relationships are hurt or broken? We can, as individuals or larger groups, restore the relationship and repair the harm.

How do we restore relationships and repair harm? One way is through Restorative Practices: “restorative practices is a social science that studies how to build social capital and achieve social discipline through participatory learning and decision-making” (Wachtel, 2016).

We welcome Mary Cline-Stively, Director of Programs at ChildStrive, to speak about the principles supporting Restorative Practices and simple strategies that we can immediately implement with our families, friends, and neighbors.

Please join us for our July ACEs Quarterly event!
