When people have fallen out in our communities & workplaces, & these relationships are not healed, the loss of social capital, productivity, job satisfaction & emotional well-being is at best sad, & at worst, dangerous.
Restorative problem-solving, based on the principles of restorative justice, views wrongdoing as a violation of people and relationships. Problem solving becomes centered around an exploration of the harm that has been done and how to repair it.
This philosophical approach, with its focus on procedural, substantive and emotional satisfaction has enormous benefits – for those harmed, those responsible, their collective supporters, agencies and institutions and the wider community. The approach shifts thinking away from retribution to repair and it is the recognition that relationships matter that drives the work of Margaret Thorsborne and Associates.
Through the processes of restorative problem solving, Margaret Thorsborne & Associates is committed to strengthening the connections between people to restore social capital, job satisfaction, productivity & emotional well-being.
