  3. 3. Restorative Practices:A Primer  Relationships are a basic human need  Relationships strengthen communities because:  They help prevent us from harming one another in the first place  When harm does happen (because it will – we’re human) we are able to respond to that harm in a way that doesn’t cause the community to fall apart and hopefully actually repairs the harm done  Restorative Practices is an emerging field in social science that studies “how to strengthen relationships between individuals as well as social connections within communities.” - IIRP
  4. 4. Doing“With”  “human beings are happier, more cooperative and productive, and more likely to make positive changes in their behavior when those in positions of authority do things with them, rather than to them or for them.” - IIRP  Doing “to”  Authoritarian  Doing “for”  Enabler  Doing “with”  High support, but high accountability
