Presenter: Margaret Thorsborne
This highly engaging workshop will explore the practice and application of this relational approach to problem-solving. While the use of punitive sanctions is alive and well in many of our institutions and organisations, the restorative approach to problem-solving focuses on the harm done, and as far as possible the healing of those harms. Those responsible and those harmed are directly engaged in a face to face dialogue around the incident(s).
The workshop is an introduction to this approach and will concentrate on preparation, facilitation and follow-up, along with psychology of emotion in the healing process.
Presenter: Margaret Thorsborne is a restorative justice consultant with a background in education and counseling. She was a pioneer of and played an important role in the introduction of Restorative Practice into schools in Australia and New Zealand in the mid-late 90’s, and the UK in the early 2000’s and has since trained conference facilitators and schools in education, police and justice sectors across Australia, Asia, New Zealand, Britain, USA and Canada. She remains involved in this important reform in schools. She is currently consultant to various state and national government bodies and agencies in Australia, New Zealand, USA and the United Kingdom and has an office in London. She is a recognized expert author and trainer in the field of RP in schools and workplaces.
Margaret has continued to widen the use of restorative measures by applying the principles and philosophy of conferencing and restorative justice in workplaces in private and public sectors to rebuild relationships in the wake of a wide range of difficulties, including workplace bullying and high level conflict.
