Want to sharpen your tools? Don’t miss out on this opportunity to learn and connect with others!
Hope to see you in August!
Every year since I first stumbled across Restitution, I’ve participated in the Restitution Summer Institute in Winnipeg, Manitoba. It’s a training session that is run at the end of August, and not only do I find that it helps gets me excited and motivated for the new school year, but the best part is connecting with a group of people who have similar ideas and beliefs. I have met some of the most amazing people – some who have travelled from as far away as Iceland and India – and there is simply nothing like the energy that comes of sharing our stories and struggles and learning together.
Sound like something you might be interested in being a part of?
Truly – there is something for everyone! There are many sessions being offered – from introductory sessions for those new to Restitution to advanced levels for those who have done training in the past. There is even a facilitator training session for those who are interested in teaching these concepts to others.

Hope to see you there!
As all my teacher friends wrap things up and head to the beach this week, I know it’s difficult to even think about planning for next year…. so I apologize for this!
However, I know that by the end of every summer, my brain starts kicking into gear and thinking about all that I want to accomplish with my students in the upcoming year, and setting personal goals for myself with regards to improving my own practice. One of the things that has been incredibly important in helping me with this is spending some time in reflection and discussion with like-minded people. Restitution Summer Institute has been the place that has got me back in the game, motivated and excited to try new things.
There’s really something for everyone. If you are brand-new to Restitution, there is an introductory course. If you know the basics already, there are courses to help you apply Restitution principles to different situations – from implementing Restitution as a staff, to learning hands-on lesson plans for use in the classroom, to understanding the change process for Administrators. If you really want to deepen your understanding, there’s Control Theory courses, which help you to move from “doing” Restitution to truly living it. And if you are not in the education profession, but are a parent, foster parent, or social worker, there’s a Restitution for Parents course that applies all the principles to the home.
So, before you go enjoy your well-deserved holiday, consider joining us in August to share, learn, and have some fun together. I’d love to see you there!
