Restorative Justice in Schools:
Using Restorative Practices to Support a Culture of Care
To educators and those interested in education:
This online, professional development training is now being offered at www.restorativejustice.com, under the Online Training link. this online training is based on the idea that restorative justice practices can be used in schools, particularly in classrooms, to help create a culture of care in schools. In the field of a culture of care, research shows that there needs to be a sense of school connectedness and caring and nurturing relationships between the teachers and the students so that there can be an increase in the students’ positive experiences of schooling and a movement away from zero-tolerance punishment strategies.
You are invited to participate in Restorative Justice in Schools: Using Restorative Practices to Support a Culture of Care online professional development training. This online training consists of 16 modules. This research-based best practices training is facilitated by Dr. Tom Cavanagh as a training-the-trainers, online professional development training.
Please share this announcement with other people who might be interested in this offering.
With kind regards
Tom Cavanagh, P.D.
Since January I have worked to turn the face-to-face training I offer into an online version. I have tried to stay true to the content and spirit of the face-to-face training. So that means this training may look different from other online courses. So I look forward to offering the course soon.
In the meantime please read about the course under the “Online Training” page of this website.

Welcome to the new RJEd Blog. I look forward to sharing with you and hearing from you. My hope is together we can learn how to create a new future for our children where restorative justice in schools as the basis for a culture of care is the norm.
