COPACS presents STEVE NEWLOVE

Restorative Practices in the Home & School

Strengthening the Relationship
with Your School-Aged Child

Tuesday, April 23, 2013 @7pm at Bayside Middle School

 

Restorative Practice:

This approach seeks to foster healthy behaviours and stronger relationships, by engaging parents, children and teachers in restorative ways. Key to this practice is the understanding that challenging and inappropriate behaviour is an opportunity for learning.

Learn:

  • how to deal with issues relevant to parenting
  • gain greater understanding of child's needs,
  • resolve conflicts and strengthen relationships, and
  • apply techniques right away in parenting your child.

 

Steve Newlove:

Currently is Vice-Principal at Bayside Middle School in Saanich.  While VP and psychology teacher at Parkland Secondary, he refined school discipline by applying Restitution and  Restorative  Practices  into the school’s conduct protocol, which decreased negative behaviours and improved school culture and tone. 

Steve has presented on Restorative Practices in Saanich and other school districts, at the provincial  Restorative Justice Conference, and at yearly orientations on Restorative Practices.  Steve is a trained conference facilitator and holds Level Three certification in Restitution.
