Restorative Practices Campus Team Training and Coaching Support Services

Restorative practices are part of the Multi-tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) and shift the paradigm of traditional behavior management by focusing on community building and development of strong and powerful relationships, rather than punishment alone. IDRA’s professional development and turnaround training explores the key goals of restorative practices that help clients to:

  • Create caring climates to support healthy learning communities
  • Encourage accountability and responsibility through personal reflection within a collaborative planning process
  • Facilitate implementation on a campus
  • Understand why traditional discipline systems contribute to the harm
  • Understand how to change the current discipline system

What IDRA can do for you:

  • Research-based professional development training
  • Team training
  • Coaching and mentoring
