Carolina Hernandez working with Broughal MS on Restorative Practices.

On Friday, February 17th, CSO Director and CCE Associate Director Carolina Hernandez facilitated a Restorative Practices Training for Broughal Middle School (Bethlehem Area School District) teachers and administrators.  Restorative practices, a framework for building communities through conflict resolution and harm prevention, has been an increasingly valuable tool for our school systems as we seek to develop strong active citizens who can face conflict with resiliency and humility.  Carolina is an official RP trainer and was certified by the International Institute on Restorative Practices, which is right around the corner here in Bethlehem.
