Dublin South ‘Mentoring Restoratively’ Training
Our Mentors in Dublin South recently completed Le Chéile’s
new training on ‘How to Mentor Restoratively.’ Mentoring is a restorative process
naturally, and through the delivery of the training the volunteers seamlessly adapted
the PR frame work explicitly with their practice.
The core message throughout the training reinforced the need
for a positive role model in a young person’s life and the need for support and
working with a young person through a difficult time in their life.
The training aims to give volunteers a better understanding
of restorative practice and restorative justice. It will provide volunteers with the knowledge
and skills to empower them to mentor restoratively and put an explicit framework
on their current practice as a Mentor. Volunteers
will learn the principles and practices of restorative practice in line with
theories outlined by the International Institute of Restorative Practice
The volunteers all gave great feedback and really took on the
key messages of Restorative Practice. Thanks to the volunteers and Marie, who
were very welcoming. They were great
participants and we’re looking forward to hearing how they are getting on
reflecting on their practice in the ‘WITH box!’.
