Going round in circles.

Over the past three weeks I have had the
opportunity to facilitate three separate
live circle meetings in my role as a
facilitator and Police officer in
The first circle (Case study 1) directly
involved young people at risk of
exclusion from school.
The next one (Case study 2) included
concerned parents of a group of young
people, and the Police.
Finally, the most recent example (Case
study 3) was with representatives from
the Somali and African Caribbean
communities in Leicester. Some
participants were parents of young
people who have displayed extremely
violent behaviour towards each other. (excerpt)
