A Whole Systems Approach in Oxfordshire to Improve resilience, engagement and mental wellbeing for children and young people

Resorative Practice is a term used to describe behaviours, interactions and approaches which help to build and maintain positive, healthy relationships, resolve difficulties and repair harm where there has been conflict. When we work with and alongside people, there is strong evidence to say that outcomes for children and their families are improved.

The aim of these courses is to promote a system wide approach to supporting children, young people and their families by participants developing a better understanding of the relationship between Restorative Practice and improving children and young people’s mental health outcomes.

This approach is evidenced based and has proven to:

  • Improve mental wellbeing, resilience and engagement
  • Improve school attendance and attainment
  • Reduce school exclusions
  • Reduce the number of children subject to Child in Need or Child Protection Plans
  • Improve staff retention

Two courses are available: a 1-day introduction to Restorative Practice; and a 3-day workshop suitable for practitioners who want to develop an in-depth knowledge of Restorative Practice, including facilitating restorative conversations and restorative meetings.
