Initial Restorative Justice Practices

Initial Restorative Justice Practices

Restorative practices help to build community, celebrate accomplishments, transform conflict, rebuild relationships that have been harmed, and reintegrate students who have been suspended or expelled.

A restorative approach brings awareness that misconduct is part of the developmental process of every young person. Corrective responses to misconduct using punishment can actually increase the likelihood that the misbehavior will re-occur. Both the theory and practice of Restorative Justice emphasize: (1) identifying the harm, (2) involving all stakeholders, and (3) true accountability— repairing the harm and addressing its causes. Restorative Justice Practices applied in our schools reflects an approach to wrongdoing and harmful behavior that aims to both prevent wrongdoing at all levels, and intervene in offending behavior while restoring the relationship between students and adults.

Course Objectives:

  • Understand the theory of Restorative Practices and learn the model for school settings

  • Align Restorative Justice Practices within the PBIS Framework

  • Build the needed skills to begin implementing Restorative Justice Practices at the Tier 1 level school wide and within classrooms

  • Practical application and practice of circles within shared values and guidelines

  • Learn strategies that foster positive relationships and school connections for students, staff, and families

Inter-Tribal Youth Suicide Prevention Summit

Inter-Tribal Youth Suicide Prevention Summit

The American Indian Health Commission and the Chehalis Tribe are honored to invite Native youth (ages 13-24), mental health supervisors, Tribal/UIHP program staff, tribal elders and other concerned community members to the 4th Annual Intertribal Youth Suicide Prevention Summit: I Choose Life; Embrace Your Sacredness.

NATIVE YOUTH WILL:

Hear and meet Native leaders, experts, and other guests from around the Nation to learn how to support one another and understand the impacts we all face together.
Create a space to share hope, love, and healing through understanding and development of cultural protection and skills building.
Participate in open conversations about the impacts of suicide in tribal communities and become leaders in their communities.

Suicide continues to haunt our Native peoples, and it affects our communities more than any other race in the U.S: The rate of suicide among Native Youth is more than double the rate of any other ethnic population.

Among Native peoples, suicide rates peak during adolescence and young adulthood and then decline later in age. This trend is the opposite in other racial and ethnic groups. That’s why it is important for our Native youth to come together now and become warriors to protect our future generations.

Webinar: Partnering with faith communities to promote faith, hope, and life

Webinar: Partnering with faith communities to promote faith, hope, and life

Research indicates people who are struggling with thoughts of suicide are increasingly turning to their faith communities and faith leaders for help and support, even before they will seek care from mental health professionals. The 2012 National Strategy for Suicide Prevention calls for the suicide prevention field to work with leaders across sectors and settings, including faith leaders from both congregational and unique ministry settings (e.g. hospital, civil, and military chaplaincy), to integrate suicide prevention into their work and organizations. Through its Faith Communities Task Force and Faith.Hope.Life. campaign, the National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention (Action Alliance) is committed to engaging all faiths in suicide prevention.

This free, 75-minute webinar will underscore the work of the Action Alliance's Faith Communities Task Force and its Faith.Hope.Life. campaign and explore ways the suicide prevention field can partner with faith communities to promote message of faith, hope, and reasons to live.

During the webinar, speakers will discuss:

  • the important role faith leaders and faith communities play as key partners in suicide prevention efforts;
  • the recently released Suicide Prevention Competencies for Faith Leaders and how to implement this resource into community-based suicide prevention efforts; and
  • the upcoming National Weekend of Prayer for Faith, Hope, and Life and how to get involved in this national movement.

Webinar Speakers:

  • Mr. Brandon Johnson, Action Alliance Faith Communities Task Force Public Sector Co-Lead; and Public Health Advisor, Center for Mental Health Services Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration
  • Dr. Karen Mason, Action Alliance Faith Communities Task Force Member; and Associate Professor of Counseling and Psychology Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary
