Restorative Practice

Restorative Practices is an effective, trauma-informed approach that helps schools improve relationships and support skill development for students coping with adversity, managing emotion, and being accountable. Six Rivers DRC provides a Whole-School approach Restorative Practices model that is employed throughout a school to address issues between students, staff, and families.

Restorative Practices in schools help:

  • build connections to change behaviors and repair relationships;
  • provide targeted behavioral health supports to reduce risks for youth disruptive behavior, suspensions, expulsions, and substance use;  
  • improve mental health and well-being, including stress-management, interpersonal skills, and adaptability;
  • decrease tardiness, office visits, absences, and suspensions.

Restorative Practices helps students, staff, and families build a strong community at school through healthy relationships and processes for resolving conflict, and it gives students the skills to better cope with adversity and help ensure equity within our communities.
