I really enjoy training teachers and helping schools implement Restorative Justice. Facilitating the process is a skill, it requires practice and time to develop the habits. There is a shift that needs to take place within the restorative justice practitioner. You have to recognize the limits of punishment and the value of inclusiveness. Be willing to try it and evaluate it for yourself. You will find, time spent will help you move from IQ, to EQ to SQ!
