Forgiveness and Healing – A two-hour training focused on understanding healing as an important step in restoring from harm, stress, and life challenges. Forgiveness is a personal healing journey rooted in restorative actions. This workshop examines one’s personal soulular, forgiveness process, and how we teach others to value the importance of healing and forgiveness.
Restorative Workshop Facilitator Training – A two-day training that provides professionals the tools and confidence to facilitate TKF’s Restorative Workshop and its restorative principles. The training certifies participants to use the curriculum in working with youth.
Restorative Circles give individuals an opportunity to have a voice and opinion about recent incidents, challenges, and conflicts that are impacting a school or community. The circle process allows the group to work together to problem solve and identify solutions for going forward. TKF staff serves as circle facilitators and provides reflective prompts to promote community building, safely address issues, and allow for optimal participation and engagement.
