QLD Seminar – Affect & Emotion in the Restorative School



Affect & Emotion in the Restorative School

A series of three Workshops conducted around Southeast Queensland in May and July 2014.

In the workshops, presenter Graeme George explained how understanding the biology of human emotion gives teachers valuable insights into behavioural issues, and how restorative approaches can work so well to build and nurture relationships in a school. This series of three workshops drew from a number of areas in psychology to help teachers better understand human behaviour and motivation, how restorative processes work, and how we can help build psychological resilience and develop learning skills. The psychology of the learning process was explored to help the group develop a vision of pedagogy that builds relationship while challenging students to academic success.
