Restorative practice is not simply a way of doing; it's a way of being, and it takes practice! In Independent Thinking on Restorative Practice Mark sets out key principles and their application, as well as the opportunities and challenges around their use, in this accessible, easy-to-read book. Furthermore, this book is not just for teachers - because restorative practice is not just for schools. It works for children, young people and families in a wide variety of contexts and settings, with young and old, with peers and colleagues, and in our work as leaders and managers.
In short, anyone interested in the power of human relationships to enable change to happen will find material in this book to help them.
