Belinda Hopkins

Director of Transforming Conflict

Belinda Hopkins is the Director of Transforming Conflict. She pioneered the application of restorative principles in school settings in the UK in the late 1990’s and created the first training course in restorative skills developed specifically for teachers.

Belinda is one of the most published authors in the world in the field of restorative approaches in both schools and care. Her pioneering books ‘Just Schools’ (JKP 2004), ‘Just Care’ (JKP 2009), and The Restorative Classroom (Optimus 2011)are internationally acclaimed.

In order to remain at the cutting edge of developments in the field Belinda spent six years researching the experiences of those who have been implementing restorative approaches in their schools. The results form the first doctoral thesis in this field, completed in 2006 at the University of Reading.

In 2013 she became an acredited practitioner and this has now been updated by the RJC until 2016. Belinda maintains her practice base by volunteering for West Berkshire’s Restorative Justice Service.
