Teachers are looking for new ways to respond to challenging behaviour. The premise of the book is that teachers can make a difference and that schools and early childhood education settings can be places where behaviour is addressed with courage and conviction.
Both the education sector and wider society are increasingly exploring culturally responsive and relationship-based principles and practices. This booksets out the theory and practice of a range of restorative practices and shows they can work in education settings. There is discussion of issues such as building systems-level engagement, leadership approaches and adults modelling restorative practice.
The editors have drawn together educators and researchers who are experts in their field and who care deeply about students and teachers.
