Webinar recording | The philosophy and practice of Restorative Engagement
5 March 2021
Purchase this webinar to consider the context of Restorative Practice highlighting the concepts of ownership of conflict situations, the rightness and wrongness of actions, empathy and remorse, culpability and atonement.
In recognising the imperative of the conflicted parties’ ‘buy-in’ to a process, we will explore the practitioner ‘art of engagement’ at the individual meeting stage.
- what are we doing with what we are hearing?
- how do we receive participant’s answers to our questions and use these to engage buy-in?
- why is it so important that participation be the individual’s idea, rather than the practitioner’s?
This webinar will explore these key areas of practice, alongside the skill set required to bring parties to both a recognition of the potential in dialogue and their acknowledgement of whom it is they need to talk with. This is the ‘art of engagement’, one that provides the forum for an individual to chart their journey, rather than being directed in this walk.
The content of this webinar will be of interest to all those involved in Restorative Justice, Restorative Practice and dispute resolvers who are using or are curious as to how they might use, Restorative Practice in their work.
