Restorative Practice at Work is a thoughtful, reflective and highly practical guide to facilitating contentedness and effectiveness in the workplace. Drawing on insights from a range of theories and ideas, Lesley Parkinson provides an evidence-based set of six practices to be explored by individuals and teams. Complete with tools and real-life examples, the practices facilitate working through the nature of problems at work (for example, exploring thoughts, feelings and relationships), and finding solutions of benefit all round. The book will be of particular interest to those working in health and social care, but the foundations apply to all workplace settings.
