Resources


One of the main cornerstones of Restorative Practices is the Social Disciple Window.  This video introduces much of the language used in Restorative Practices and defines what being restorative means.  The Social Discipline Window is a tool that can be used by anyone in a position of authority to recognize whether they are exercising their authority in a restorative manner.  

According to Wachtel & McCold (1999), as depicted in each quadrant above, there are four general approaches to social discipline: neglectful, permissive, punitive (authoritarian) and restorative (authoritative).   The control axis can be defined as the level of discipline or limit setting.  The support axis can be defined as the level of encouragement or nurturing.
