Intervention strategies

Updated: Feb 4, 2021

"THOSE IN AUTHORITY DO THINGS WITH THEM, RATHER THAN TO THEM OR FOR THEM" (COSTELLO ET AL.)

 

RESTORATIVE PRACTICE

  • Solution focused

  • Positive relationships + mutual respect + reflective practices

  • FOCUS: relationships + personal accountability through reflection

  • Where all those involved and affected by an incident come together with a trained facilitator to explore what happened, who was affected and what needs to be done

  • Family-group decision making: decisions and plans need to be made about a young persons

 

APPROACHING CONFLICT

H - hear

E - empathise

A - acknowledge

T - take action

 

NO BLAME APPROACH

  • Talk with the victim (focus on feelings, not events)

  • Explain what you are going to do (ask what is to be kept confidential)

  • Convene a healthy group of kids

  • Share responsibility (everyone’s responsibility to solve the problem)

  • Meet again a week later (bully and victim)

 

METHOD OF SHARED CONCERN

  • Individual meetings with each student involved

  • Enter the classroom of the students involved and ask to speak to the students involved

  • Don’t explain the reason for meeting

  • SCRIPT: I hear you have been nasty to ____. Tell me about it. Sounds like ____ is having a hard time in school, how would you help him?

  • Follow-up on individual

  • Group meeting
