Integrative Training & Coaching Proposal for Disco Apocalypse - Restorative Integration

Integrative Training & Coaching Proposal for Disco Apocalypse

Proposal presented by: Restorative Integration

Welcome to Restorative Integration!

We offer compassion-and-connection-centered learning, coaching and consulting in Restorative Integration as well as a robust online community platform to support your journey toward greater Power-and-Equity Consciousness.

What is Power-and-Equity Consciousness (PEC)?

Power-and-Equity Consciousness (PEC) is a term that was developed by Restorative Integration Founder, Dr. Amanda Aguilera in conversation with her colleague, Regina Smith, to refer to the state of awareness of social power dynamics, including those in interpersonal power differentials as well as collective and systemic power, that influence equity in relationship where there is a status power differential. As your PEC develops, you are more capable of seeing power dynamics as they occur, inequities that show up in those power dynamics, and deciphering your responsibilities and vulnerabilities within those dynamics.

Why do I need to develop my PEC?

Power is present in every relationship. When you have a framework for understanding power dynamics, the language to talk about it, and the skills to navigate it, you are better resourced for creating and maintaining relationships across difference.

Here are just some of the outcomes you can expect as you develop your PEC:

Create Communities of Belonging
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said, "Our goal is to create a beloved community and this will require a qualitative change in our souls as well as a quantitative change in our lives.” This challenge is designed to help build Beloved Community where there is mutual belonging, collective care and active responsibility.
Know Your Power
Often we can feel powerless when it comes to navigating relationships with difference. After this training, you will not only know what power you do have, but also how to use that power in ways that can empower others. Knowing your power and the accompanying responsibilities and vulnerabilities that come with it, is empowering for you, can minimize harm (misuses/abuses of power), and empowers others.
Understand Your Brain on Power
Neurobiology has a powerful influence on how we perceive the world and others. Understanding how the brain organizes around power in the power differential can help us navigate power dynamics with more integrating and understanding.
Know Ourstory
From our ancestry, cultural past, and the documented context of oppression, you will be guided through how multi-level power works to create and maintain systems of oppression. You will get an introduction to systemic power so that you have the full picture of power dynamics.
Work with Emotion
From shame to rage, confusion and frustration, intense emotions can arise when we talk about power and difference. With PEC, you can recognize emotions as they arise and choose to respond from an anti-oppression lens. Learn what it means to self-regulate without "shoulding" others.
Transform Conflict
Go from conflict-avoidant or competitive to conflict-positive by gaining the perspective and skills needed to transform interpersonal difficulties within power differentials into generative conflict and opportunities for deepening your relationships

About our Integrated Training Program

Self-Paced Online Courses

  • Consecutive content delivered in quarterly, asynchronous (self-paced) online courses.
  • Each course takes about 2 – 3.5 hours to complete and involves a multimedia approach to learning to keep you engaged.
  • These courses cover the foundational concepts needed to engage in the live online training sessions.
  • These also allow you to take your own pace in learning those concepts, give you time to reflect, and keep the costs of training down.

Social Group for Your Team

  • Your team will have your own private group where you can share with each other and discuss the course content. 
  • This group can be used as you like (not just for course content). You can upload/download documents, share messages (to the group or individuals), and much more!
  • Engage with the trainers/facilitators inside the group!
  • Access everything in one place. No need to track down emails, search for documents, or search for messages. All you have to do is login to our site and pick up where you left off.

Integrated Live Training

  • Either in-person on virtually these live training sessions will deepen and expand the material presented in the self-paced online courses.
  • Two facilitators will guide you through interactive, team-building experiences to develop your learning
  • Also provided during these live sessions is debriefing, coaching, skills practice and experiential exercises.
  • Bring your reflections and questions and get ready to deepen your relationship with yourself and others in the group.

Our Recommendations

After listening to your needs, we recommend the “All-In” plan and here’s why:

  • You expressed both a desire to increase understanding of and competency in status power issues, AND a need to address some of the conflict that has arisen between some of your employees. The All-In plan would allow you to address both simultaneously with the PEC training alongside Building a Restorative Community.
  • The All-In Plan allows you to use 8 hours (with a BIG discount) per quarter (every 3 months) in any way you wish – for consulting or live training – depending on your needs. So you could do a 2 hour training in September, October and November with 2 hours of consulting; or you could do a 2 hour training in September, 2 hours of consulting as needed, and a 4 hour training in October or November; or in any configuration that works best for you. You’ll see our initial recommendation below with the All-In Plan.
  • In addition to the live consulting and training, everyone would have access to the online platform for self-paced learning (one course every quarter would be released so there would be plenty of time for folx to take the course – and it will help to keep the material alive between live sessions). We send reminders throughout the quarter to everyone on the team with challenge questions.
  •  We were so happy to hear that you would like to take a multi-year strategy approach -which is the only way to do this work! It is a long-term effort and requires ongoing exposure in order to shift culture. Otherwise, it becomes a one-off training that is soon forgotten.
