Restorative Practice: Time to Connect. Royal Borough of Greenwich Conference 2017

In our increasingly disconnected world, this one day conference will focus on the ways restorative practice allows individuals to overcome conflict and harm and reconnect with each other. It will also be an opportunity to connect with practitioners from your and other practice areas, helping to forge new partnerships that improve outcomes for families and citizens alike. Featuring leading academics in the field and published authors running the workshops, the conference will enable participants to refocus and re-connect with restorative practice and its benefits.
