Recorded on March 30, 2012
Adam and Bob’s guest, Ted Wachtel, is the president of the International Institute for Restorative Practices (IIRP) and author of Toughlove, Toughlove Solutions and Real Justice. IIRP is the world’s first graduate school devoted entirely to the teaching, research and dissemination of restorative practices. At the school’s model programs, CSF Buxmont schools for at-risk youth, the use of restorative practices has been shown to significantly reduce offending rates and improve youth attitudes. During the show, Ted provided a series of simple questions that can be used to defuse a situation and bring understanding to parties in conflict.
