Marisol Rerucha is the author of Beyond the Surface of Restorative Practices and a Partner Consultant with The Core Collaborative. We recently caught up with Marisol to ask some of the big questions educators want and need to understand about how to effectively include Restorative Practices in their schools and systems.
Question 1: What are Restorative Practices?
In the ancestral concept of the circle, no one is above, below, behind, or in front. This applies to the work of building relationships and addressing conflict in Restorative Practices.
Question 2: What do people get wrong about Restorative Practices?
Marisol explains why it is critical to the success of Restorative Practices to understand that it is a way of being, not just something you do.
Question 3: What are the key components of practicing Restorative Practices?
The roles of expectations, communication, and co-creating are foundational to not just restore relationships, but to build them.
Embrace healing for self, others, and our community.
