This seminar will prepare the ground and provide practical tips for developing a whole-school Dignity in the Workplace policy. The mechanism to address conflict will be a restorative one. If you enjoyed the Restorative Practices seminar last year, this seminar is likely to be of interest, but you don’t need to have attended it to benefit from this seminar.
