Who am I and what am I doing here?

My name is Nicholas Bradford. I have been a life-long student of conflict and education. I started my journey interested in education, specifically democratic, experiential and progressive education. Through happenstance I took the long road to education. I was diverted away from the traditional classroom and found my way toward creative education models. After exploring creative education models, I found Restorative Justice. This has been a galvanizing force in my life. After two years in Vermont I moved back to Washington. Finding little Restorative Justice in the greater Seattle area, I plugged into the Dispute Resolution Centers. I have become a Mediator and have blended that experience into my RJ facilitation. My passion is in alternative discipline models for Schools, Colleges and Youth Serving Agencies. With this blog, I am creating a community and resource for the RJ community for the Puget Sound region. I will be posting interesting articles, program, reports and pertinent happenings in the realm of discipline. This will not just be a re-posting of interesting discipline stories. This will be informative and academic in nature. I expect this to be critical in a helpful fashion as well as being supportive/creative. Expect my opinion. My best, Nicholas

About rjfacilitator

My experience, education, and passion have met in alternative discipline. Through my policy work and my mediation experience I have worked and studied the dynamic components of discipline in many settings. While Restorative Justice is not the only way to approach conflict in communities, it has provided me an effective model in which to examine and engage in conflict. We provide custom programs for schools, colleges, and youth serving agencies seeking to engage with conflict using healthy and sustainable tools.
