Restorative practice is a tool for building community, strengthening relationships, and addressing difficult situations. It actively engages individuals in the process of building community and provides opportunities to address challenging issues and restore trust. 

Restorative practices are rooted in ancient and indigenous from various cultures around the world, including Native American, First Nation Canadian, African, Celtic, and Hebrew. Restorative practices originated in the 1970s, with mediation between victims and offenders, and eventually expanded to include proactive elements.
