TedXMacatawa Talk on Restorative Circles by Ann McKnight

Restorative Circle Introduction by Jill Russell

Restorative Circle Facilitator Training is typically offered each year in January. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, trainings are on hold since this work is best learned in person face-to-face. Our last training was January 23-24, 2020.  Our trainings provide the opportunity to learn and practice a model of approaching conflict in relationship, families, churches, workplaces and groups. This training gives detailed information on each phase of a Restorative Circle and gives opportunity to practice all three rounds of dialogue used in a Circle. We will update this site with future training dates when the public health crisis has shifted to the point where gathering in person safely is once again possible.

What are Restorative Circles?

A Restorative Circle is a community process for supporting people in conflict. It brings together those who have acted, those directly impacted by the actions, and the wider community. The voluntary gatherings provide a systemic context for dialogue to find new actions that will bring mutual benefit. Watch this video for a brief introduction.
