AVP Alternatives to Violence Project - Advanced Community Workshop February 22-24 2019

Creating a Culture of Peace

The Advanced (Level 2) AVP Workshop focuses on the underlying causes of violence, both in ourselves and in the world around us, such as fear, anger, stereotyping and power. In this fun, interactive workshop we explore deeper ways to resolve conflicts, including assertiveness and forgiveness. People who’ve taken the training report they have connected deeply with others, laughed, shared, listened. They’ve experienced increased trust and self-esteem and learned ways to reduce conflict in their world—whether classroom, family, work, or community.

The workshop is open to anyone who has completed an AVP Basic workshop.

This three-day workshop develops the concepts, principles and tools of nonviolent conflict resolution and Transforming Power introduced in the Basic workshop.  Participants who complete this workshop qualify for the next level workshop, where you can train to be an AVP facilitator and bring these skills to your own community or workplace.

The schedule is Friday 6:00 -9:00pm /Saturday 9:00am - 9:00pm /Sunday 1:00pm - 6:00pm.  Attendance is necessary to receive a certificate of completion.

Registration is $ 30 ; it includes lunch and dinner on Saturday, and snacks during the whole workshop.

Partial or full scholarships are available; no one will be turned away due to financial need. Contact QVZQU291dGhDQXJvbGluYSB8IGdtYWlsICEgY29t

Conflict is part of everyday life...but violence does not have to be. This three-day interactive workshop is a transformative group experience which empowers us to resolve conflicts nonviolently. 

In an environment of respect and trust, build self-esteem, connect deeply with others, and practice communication and creative conflict resolution to transform yourself and your community, and have fun! 

Alternatives to Violence Project (AVP) helps us explore the power we all have to change hostility and destructiveness into cooperation, community, and justice.

AVP is a multi-cultural organization of volunteers offering interactive workshops that teach skills of non-violent conflict resolution and empower people to lead nonviolent lives, through Affirmation, Communication, Cooperation, Community, and Creative Conflict Resolution. 

AVP, begun in 1975, is active in communities, schools, & prisons worldwide. For more info visit Complete Level 1, 2, & 3 Workshops to become an AVP Facilitator.
