Edge of Amazing: Breakout Session A - Creating a trauma-informed restorative-practice community

  1. 1. A Trauma Informed, Restorative Community TOGETHER WE HAVE THE POWER TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE
  2. 2. Trauma Informed Care is a strengths-based framework that is grounded in an understanding of and responsiveness to the impact of trauma…that emphasizes relationships, being curious, non- judgmental, and creates space for physical, psychological, and emotional safety for all . This paradigm shift builds and allows for opportunities to rebuild and keep a sense of empowerment and resiliency. Trauma Informed Care
  3. 3. Restorative Practice is a way of thinking and being focused on creating safe spaces for real conversations that deepen relationships and build stronger more connected communities. ~Mark Vander Vennen Restorative Practice
  4. 4. The fundamental hypothesis of restorative practice is that 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 or for them. International Institute of Restorative Practice Fundamental Hypothesis
  5. 5. Beneath the Surface

  8. 8. What Can We Do?  Be clear, consistent, predictable and follow through  Validate  Self-regulate  Assume positive intent, build on success, rather than establishing limits  De-escalate  Check assumptions - observe and ask questions  Deeply listen, notice strengths and successes  Maintain high expectations
  9. 9. What Else Can We Do? • Provide unconditional positive regard (accepting others as they are without judgment or evaluation) • Provide guided opportunities for voice and choice participation • Focus on developing feelings of safety, trust, and reliability within the relationship • Self-care – ethical obligation Those who have been in the midst of trauma or toxic stress have difficulty understanding their own emotions and communicating them appropriately – they tend to use behaviors to communicate their emotions.
  10. 10. Social Discipline Window
  11. 11. Restorative Questions  Open-ended questions to help elicit emotion  Allow individuals space to explore issues in a non-threatening way.  Address past, present and future.  Proactively used to explore positive changes in behavior.  Responsively used to explore harm and how that harm impacts others.
