Book Description

This work helps in rethinking behaviour management through the use of restorative justice methods in the classroom. This clearly presented manual takes practitioners in gradual stages through the harsh realities of confronting wrong-doing and injustice in school. The traditional approach seeks simply to apportion blame and punish the wrongdoer. There is now strong evidence that restorative justice can be effective in reducing problem behaviour, and in engendering a sense of fairness and justice among all stakeholders in the school community. The book provides: an explanation of restorative justice and behaviour management; a wide range of restorative practice measures; step-by-step instructions for planning and facilitating individual, small group and whole class conferences; frequently asked questions and answers; key master documents that can be adapted; and, case studies. It is full of practical suggestions and techniques for dealing with problem behaviour, whether trivial or serious. It is suitable for ages 7-16.
