Introduction to Council & Restorative Justice for Educators


  • 12130 Millennium Drive Los Angeles, CA 90094 (map)

Introduction to Council & Restorative Justice is for educators, parents, and youth workers, and prepares participants to begin circle facilitation in classes, schools, families, youth organizations, and with peers and colleagues. This two day workshop is participatory, fun, relevant, and useful. It covers the history and basics of circle practices, formats and modalities, framing effective prompts, and how to use circle ways to further academic goals, social-emotional skill building, student chosen and directed curriculum, and youth leadership. Introduction to Council also provides the foundation for a restorative justice approach to discipline. The workshop is appropriate for pre-K through post secondary educators. LAUSD staff are eligible to receive one salary point for the completion of this course and 15 hours of outside reading, experiences, and written reflections.
