Description

Learn a new way to make a real difference in our community

Take a Kern County Together workshop


The Alternatives to Violence Project is a network of volunteers running workshops for anyone who wants to find ways of resolving conflict without resorting to violence. We work in the community and in prisons.

The thinking behind AVP

We understand that conflict is a natural and normal part of life, and that it is possible to learn new ways of handling it. By holding workshops in which the participants consider the underlying causes of friction and violence, practical ways of dealing with situations of conflict are worked out.

Our workshops build on everyday experiences and try to help us move away from violent or abusive behaviour by developing other ways of dealing with conflicts. They help us to increase the respect we have for ourselves and others.

TAKE NO NOTES - Come prepared to discover new ways of approaching disagreement.
Treat yourself to this workshop purely for personal growth. Or make it a first step toward facilitating ALTERNATIVES TO VIOLENCE PROJECT (AVP) workshops in prisons, the community or classroom.

See www.avpcalifornia.org for details on the program and concept.




ENJOY a hands-on, experiential, conflict resolution workshop where you’ll connect deeply with others, laugh, share, listen while learning ways to reduce conflict in your world, your classroom, your family, or at work.
