  • twitter: @hullrestorative #hullrestorative To respond to challenging behaviour When challenging behaviour, why would these questions consistently achieve ‘fair process’?: Restorative Questions 1
    • What happened?
    • What were you thinking about at the time?
    • What have your thoughts been since?
    • Who has been affected by what you did?
    • In what way have they been affected?
    • What do you think needs to happen next?
  • twitter: @hullrestorative #hullrestorative To help those harmed by others actions: Why would these questions assist those harmed by others actions to experience ‘fair process?’: Restorative Questions 2
    • What happened?
    • What were your thoughts at the time?
    • What have your thoughts been since?
    • How has this affected you and others?
    • What has been the hardest thing for you?
    • What do you think needs to happen next?
    • the questions are neutral and non-judgemental; they are about the wrongdoer’s behaviour and it’s effect upon others; they are open questions which require an answer; they take everyone from the past (what happened) to the future (repairing harm); they require people to reflect on who has been affected; and they are likely to help the wrongdoer develop some empathy for those affected. twitter: @hullrestorative #hullrestorative Restorative Questions: Characteristics - 1
    • they seek to build an understanding rather than to blame; the person asking is likely to be seen as objective and respectful; they actually allow the person to tell their story; they are more likely to promote responsibility; they can be applied in every situation; and they are thinking questions, yet are likely to get 'feeling' responses. twitter: @hullrestorative #hullrestorative Restorative Questions: Characteristics - 2
