avp-Forum      S / ONAD      Alternatives to Violence Project      


Create a non-violent society where we all live in peace and dignity.



The Alternatives to Violence Project (AVP) is a training programme enabling participants to deal with potentially violent situations in new and creative ways. Workshops are delivered by our trained facilitators and are experiential (not based on lectures).


Our workshops draw on the shared experience of participants, using interactive exercises, discussions, games and role-plays 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:

  • build good relationships with other people
  • respect yourself and your uniqueness
  • communicate constructively in difficult situations
  • recognise the conflict management skills you already have
  • be true to yourself while respecting other people
  • understand conflict dynamics
  • manage and overcome strong feelings such as anger and fear
  • deal more effectively and creatively with risk and threatening situations
  • approach conflict in a more creative and less reactive manner
  • consider your own (mostly unconscious) relationship to systems of violence

You can find more information on the website of AVP-International.
