For Advanced Practitioners

Intentional_Classroom_Engagement_Boxshot__83138_1.jpg Students thrive in a school where they feel welcomed and accepted. This event is designed for restorative practitioners who have had previous training or classroom experience in restorative practices and will help you foster a spirit of shared ownership and responsibility within your classroom.  The content of the workshop is based on the book Advanced Practitioner Series: Intentional Classroom Engagement by IIRP Senior Advisor to the President and Assistant Professor Craig W. Adamson.

For the best experience possible, we strongly recommend purchasing and reviewing the book prior to this training.

Led by an experienced instructor, you will develop advanced skills and competencies for engaging with students. During each online session, you will explore a different aspect of intentional classroom engagement.

  • Session 1 – Building RelationshipsExamine areas for improvement in your professional practice and interpersonal influence in order to build relationships and community so that all feel included.
  • Session 2 – Self-ReflectionExplore the role of self-reflection in building relationships in order to advance your practice and identify personal biases as a means to overcoming barriers to change.
  • Session 3 – Maintaining RelationshipsCultivate a brave and safe space to foster vulnerability and authenticity, allowing students to genuinely express their identity, thoughts, and feelings.
  • Session 4 – Responding to Harm and ReintegrationExplore the meaning and purpose of reintegration by examining ways to address harm and welcome students back into the classroom community.
