Speechmark, 2008, 60 p.

Explores the use of restorative practices in schools as an alternative to punishment as a way to manage bullying. Covers bullying in the classroom, school buildings, playgrounds, mobile phones, and the internet. Provides responses that can bring about repair and healing and make schools safer places. Looks at: managing reluctance to face up to bullying; preventing re-victimisation; reaching and monitoring agreements; scripts for use in conferences; and key questions to ask in interviews.
