How do we respond to problematic student and staff behaviour that pose a threat to our campus community?

Through using restorative approaches threats and problematic behaviour of staff and students can be managed in a way that addresses risks and needs, but also includes those impacted by the behaviour, and works to reconnect and reintegrate the perpetrators into the community. Through non-adversarial and relational approach perpetrators can be assisted to identify the harm they caused, access the support and intervention they require and enhance their social capital and community connection in a manner that does not leave them more isolated and potentially more dangerous.

This presentation will demonstrate how restorative practices including connection circles, restorative conversations, and restorative justice conferences can become a valuable tool for both identifying and responding to threatening behaviour. It will talk to how you can create a restorative culture on your campus to fundamentally shift the way your institution approaches threat management, while still utilizing appropriate risk assessment and intervention tools.
