Restorative Practice is a values-based way of being; it aims to actively promote relationships, respond to harm, and CONNECT us to our best selves and to one another. This way of being informs how we think, engage, speak, listen, and approach situations, all day, every day. There are a set of explicit observable practices that breathe life into the values we espouse so that we are living values-in-action; the explicit language also facilitates and scaffolds this restorative way of being.
