Restoring Community

Find realistic solutions to your greatest challenges

IIRP professional development will provide you with practical skills that you can use immediately in your personal and professional life, whether you work in restorative justice, schools, social services, counseling, leadership, the pastoral field or as a volunteer.

These experiences can stand alone, but they are also modules in a larger framework that build toward a comprehensive understanding of restorative practices.

Professional development events, symposia and conferences can be a part of your graduate education as part of the IIRP's unique blended learning model. With the addition of readings and interactive online coursework, you can delve deeper with our faculty and participate in our graduate level curriculum.

 

Experienced restorative practitioners who want a cost-effective way to implement and sustain the use of restorative practices in their school or organization may become IIRP Licensed Trainers. There is an annual fee to use our training materials. Licensed trainers are responsible for purchasing required textbooks for their attendees.

You may become licensed in either or both of our 2-day professional developments:

  1. Introduction to Restorative Practices and Using Circles Effectively
  2. Facilitating Restorative Conferences

First, you must have attended the event for which you are requesting a license. Then you must attend the Training of Trainers (3 days) for the associated event. Once trained, participants will be able to provide these 2-day offerings within their agency or limited geographical area.
