Upcoming Presentations, Trainings and Circles

The Center for Restorative Practices fosters an inclusive, engaging campus climate where all members have the tools and experiences necessary to engage in meaningful, restorative dialogue around community and conflict. To help with these efforts, we host a number of presentations, circles and trainings throughout the year for the Amherst College community. See below to explore what we have planned for the upcoming semester.

The events listed below offer a snapshot of events we have offered publicly. We have also offered numerous circles and trainings by request for specific groups on campus and beyond.  If you would like to request a private training or circle for your community or group, please reach out

Summer Circle Keeper Training

In-Person 9am - 3pm CHI Think Tank, Perroti & Frank Lyceum

Interested in becoming a trained Restorative Practices Circle Facilitator? Restorative Practices Circles are a dialogical tool rooted in Indigenous ways of being that can be used to strengthen relationships and build community through storytelling. This summer, the Center for Restorative Practices is hosting a 2-part Circle Keeper Training. The first part will take place on campus in person as an all day event (9am - 3pm, lunch provided) and the second part will take place over Zoom at a later date in the Fall. 

This training is experiential by design, includes session readings, group discussions, and requires that you complete a final project consisting of designing and facilitating a circle on campus. Registration is open for students, faculty, staff, alumni and off-campus participants!
