Restorative Practices SOCIAL DISCIPLINE WINDOW The fundamental unifying hypothesis of restorative practices is that "human beings are happier, more cooperative and productive, and more likely to make positive changes in their behavior when those in positions of authority do things with them, rather than to them or for them.“ (Wachtel, 2005).
Restorative Practices Continuum Affective statements: using “I” statements and feelings to humanize speaker and describe how someone is being impacted by behavior/situations. Affective questions: open ended questions designed to encourage people to share their thoughts and feelings about a conflict situation and also understand the impact this situation has had on others.
