Cultivating healing by implementing restorative practices for youth

SAPR staff publish work on implementing restorative practices in the International Journal of Educational Research

SAPR staff member and Syracuse University School of Education doctoral candidate Layla Dehaiman and colleagues have published their work on restorative practices, non-punitive approaches to discipline focused on developing relationships and healing harm, in the International Journal of Educational Research. The article, titled Cultivating healing by implementing restorative practices for youth: Protocol for a cluster randomized trail, summarizes the work that is currently going on in a large, urban school district, identifies factors associated with implementation success, and demonstrates how to conduct a cost-benefit analysis for examining return on investment from societal and government perspectives.
