A Restorative Approach to Conflict Resolution and Building Healthy Relationships
Are you looking for better ways to work through the difficulties of challenging conflict situations in relationships within your family, workplace, or community? A Restorative approach can foster healing and resolution to disagreements, misunderstandings, and disputes – while making it feel like there is hope for peaceful coexistence. Based on restorative justice principles and practices, Peacemaking Circles and other restorative dialogue processes offer a simple yet profound method of creating deeper, more meaningful relationships among people who have a shared interest in addressing conflict and harm and building healthy relationships through collective action and mutual responsibility.
