Circles and other Restorative Practices, August 8-10, 2002, Minneapolis, Minnesota.

This workshop uses restorative principles combined with the artistic process of creating a movie, in a classroom or community setting. It shows “how to”; participants will leave with specific skills and lots of ideas. It offers an innovative and successful alternative to dealing the effects of harmful behavior. Specific video examples are shown of classes that have successfully used this process for a variety of issues and incidents. Videos are available to purchase, which include elementary school curriculum for duplication. Author’s abstract.
