LUV Restorative Practice Training
LUV Restorative Practice Training is a one-day six-hour interactive workshop specifically focused on the integration of restorative practices to provide a conceptual framework for supporting positive team relationships and create an accountability system for addressing conflicts when they arise. It is a process which challenges standard responses to conflict, namely those that are punitive, neglectful, or permissive. There is increasing emphasis on using restorative approaches not only as part of a reaction to some problem but as everyday practices that help build better relationships and a stronger sense of community. The curriculum for the restorative practice training helps to create an environment in which all individuals understand their value and are skilled in dealing effectively with their emotions, active listening, communicating and interacting with colleagues respectfully.
LUV Restorative Practice (CirCle Keeper) training and certification
LUV Restorative Practice (Circle Keeper) Training and Certification is designed for individuals interested in creating and facilitating restorative practices to improve cooperation and productivity in the workplace, classroom and community. The three-day, train-the-trainer model incorporates hands-on learning experiences with high levels of engagement. As a result, the restorative practice certification training prepares future facilitators to create an atmosphere which helps to restore the integrity and connectedness of the “community” when upsetting behaviors challenge it. Thus, the certification equips participants with the skills to lead conversations in their workplaces, in their schools and in their neighborhoods which cultivate respect for differences, reduce bullying, help repair harm and build community.
LUV Brain-Based Teaching and Learning Strategies
LUV Brain-Based Teaching and Learning Strategies Training is a one-day workshop offering differentiated instructional strategies based on current scientific research on how the brain works. Participants will learn how to develop comprehensive lesson plans which adhere to common core standards. As well, effective transitions (brain breaks) from subject to subject are introduced. Students learn differently as they grow and mature socially, emotionally and cognitively. Thus, brain-based teaching and learning strategies covered in this training are guided by the science of learning rather than past educational practices or assumptions about the learning process.
