​What is a Restorative Circle?


A restorative circle is a healthy approach to conflict that brings together all parties impacted by the conflict. A restorative circle is a voluntary gathering that treats all participants as equals and provides key language and direction for the conversation. It concludes with participants agreeing upon actions that seek mutual benefit. It is self-care for communities. I encourage organizational leaders and groups to be trained in this approach to conflict so that there are members of the organization equipped to handle a situation when it arises without having to hire or involve someone from the outside.

For an excellent TED talk about restorative circles, watch this video--Turn Toward Conflict by Ann McKnight.

Restorative Circles: A Healthy Approach to Conflict


Conflict is a completely normal part of relationships. We have all experienced some form of conflict in our families, places of employment, and even in our faith communities. But when it arises, we rarely know how to address it in a way that makes space for heathier relationships to emerge. If you would like to address a current conflict or learn how to better handle future conflicts, I would like to introduce you to restorative circles through workshops and training retreats. Additionally, I offer one-on-one conflict coaching to help individuals navigate difficult situations and conversations. McCabe Coaching specializes in communication and conflict coaching for communities, families, and workplaces. As a coach, I help people develop harmonious relationships through conflict resolution and peaceful interaction. Empowering my clients to build better connections and communicate their needs through fruitful, thoughtful discussion is the main objective of this work. Schools, businesses, communities, and families can benefit from this type of work.
