Restorative work is a 12-week tailored program designed to build and strengthen family relationships in cases where conflicts have arisen. Its primary goal is to prevent further harm while repairing family bonds.
Re-establishing contact with child and young people is a critical aspect of restorative work, especially in cases of parental separation.
Individuals are encouraged to take accountability for their role in the breakdown of relationships and acknowledge the impact they may have had on others.
By the end of the 12-week program, children and families are empowered to find solutions to their problems and make positive changes to ensure the safety and emotional well-being of the child. In cases of parental separation, restorative work can be used to re-establish contact, trust and determine the child’s wishes and feelings.
