Training of Trainers:Introduction to Restorative Practices & Using Circles Effectively

Basic Restorative Practices - 4-day event/2-day options

The IIRP conducts a three-day "Training of Trainers" (TOT) to teach experienced practitioners how to facilitate the  “Introduction to Restorative Practices” and “Using Circles Effectively" professional development days. 

Once trained, participants will be licensed trainers and able to provide this 2-day offering within their agency or limited geographical area. For organizations that have already held some amount of on-site training from the IIRP, this will provide a cost-effective way to continue to train new staff by becoming capable of providing this high-quality training "in-house." For others, it provides a way to initiate the implementation of restorative practices in your setting or conduct training in your locale.
