Sequential Restorative Circles
In sequential restorative circles, one person speaks at a time. The chance to speak moves around your circle in one direction.
Structure your sequential restorative circles around topics or questions raised by your circle facilitator. This format gives quite or reserved voices, who often get pressured by loud or assertive voices, a chance to speak freely. By using topics and questions, you also help guide your circle, and give your participants a more structured way of voicing their concerns.
When using a restorative circle, you’ll often rely on the help of a circle
. Your job as a circle facilitator is to help guide your circle, but not lead it. You don’t determine who is right or wrong. Instead, you keep everyone on track, making sure they all have an equal chance to speak.
You don’t need a leader to run a successful restorative circle though. Often you can simply trust your participants to go around, as many times as you need, keeping order yourselves.
Reason for Restorative circle concept:
to develop relationships, build communities, and respond to conflicts and problems that arise
to give everyone an equal opportunity to speak, and be listened to
human element: additional inputs, comments, rebuttals, and discussions of among disciplines
One, only let your participants speak one at a time. Don’t allow interruptions while others are talking. By doing this, you encourage everyone to listen while giving each of them an equal chance to respond.
Two, don’t pass judgement, but seek to understand problems. Your circle’s goal isn’t to pass judgement and define punishment. Instead, challenge those involved to understand why the conflict happened, and how it affected others.
Three, rotation of discussion may go left or right.
