The Alternatives to Violence Project (AVP) is a training program that enables participants to deal with conflict and violence in new and creative ways.

The program draws from the shared experience of participants, using interactive exercises and activities, discussions, games and roleplays to examine the ways we respond to situations where injustice, prejudice, frustration and anger can lead to aggressive behaviour and violence.

An AVP workshop can help you to:

  • manage strong feelings like anger and fear
  • deal more effectively with risk and threatening situations
  • build good relationships with other people
  • communicate constructively in difficult situations
  • recognise the conflict management skills you already have
  • be true to yourself while respecting other people
  • understand why conflict happens
  • approach conflict in a more creative and less reactive way
  • consider you own relationship to systems of violence
