Restorative Approaches in Schools

„Circle in the Square“ is the inspiring story of restorative approaches as implemented throughout Minnesota schools and communities, as told by one of the country’s foremost practitioners, Nancy Riestenberg.

„Restorative approaches help to shift the dominant social norms from ‚power over‘ to ‚power with,‘ talking ‚with‘ instead of talking ‚at,‘ and ‚we centered‘ instead of ‚I centered'“ (Riestenberg, 2012, p. xiii).

Over the span of her 25 year career with the Minnesota Department of Education, where she is now Violence Prevention Specialist, Riestenberg documented the successes that teachers, counselors, community-based practitioners and administrators have had repairing harm, restoring relationships, teaching lessons, and changing lives.
