Principles of Restorative Practices

• Conflicts can be understood.

• The means to understanding conflict is through effective communication.

• Difficult and problematic conversations can be facilitated.

• Human behavior can be changed.

• Humans possess the capacity for communication, and therefore for creative problem-solving.

• A society built upon effective communication will be more peaceable and progressive.
