Restorative Relationships – film
Restorative Relationships programme – interviews with graduates
This is a short film showing interviews with three graduates of Restorative Thinking Limited’s ‘Restorative Relationships’ (Relationships without Conflict) programme. The interviews took place in December 2016 at The Well in Barrow, Cumbria.
The intervention programme is based on sound evidence and is congruent with the ‘What Works’ literature. ‘Restorative Relationships’ is underpinned by DBT (Dialectical Behaviour Therapy), CBT (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy), SFT (Solution Focused Therapy) and developmental psychology. It draws on restorative principles and skills, giving participants practical strategies to improve relationships by developing positive self-talk, taking responsibility, resolving conflict and repairing harm.
The programme was delivered in Cumbria between April 2015 – October 2017 as part of the ‘Turning the Spotlight’ project, funded by the Police and Crime Commissioner. Restorative Thinking’s Restorative DA Perpetrator Programme (Relationships without Conflict) and Restorative Parenting Programme (Parenting without Conflict) were externally evaluated by The Brathay Trust as part of this project.
