Building Groups that Flourish and Fly

Circles technology is a much-loved approach to group facilitation that is used in school classrooms, dispute resolution, mediation, juvenile justice, reconciliation processes and restorative justice practice. Group workers and facilitators around the world have adopted Circles processes.

These are the values or ground rules that build cultures of respect into Circles work. Based on Sue Roffey’s ‘ASPIRE’ acronym,Strengths in Circles is built around 6 essential themes:
Each theme names 6 key values that can be discussed, interpreted and considered for adoption as ground rules by any group. Watch the dynamics of the group evolve within the sphere of these values!
