Bi Monthly RP Story Sessions by Zoom
The monthly Restorative Practice (RP) community of practice Zoom gatherings evolve into a bimonthly seminar series, as a way of enabling practitioners to share their personal stories and challenges in their specific streams of RP.
The inspiration of the series is to encourage mutual learning through listening and responding to RP experiences and insights. Members of the community will be able to nominate themselves, or colleagues, to tell their story, with a focus of their choosing, via a dedicated zoom seminar, publicised to the RP Australia zoom community of practice. All restorative practitioners are welcome.
