Event description
We support people, to learn how to handle conflict, resist violence and build better relationships.

About this event

Would you like to have better, healthier relationships? Do you wish you could resolve disputes peacefully with family, friends, neighbours or co-workers?

Would you like to become a trained facilitator?

Now you can!

In this fun, interactive, workshop, we learn how to make friends with conflict and communicate better. As you connect deeply with others, laugh and share, you will develop the skills you need to face up to conflict and build better relationships.

Participants and facilitators jointly explore our own relationships with conflict and seek more creative ways to respond. These experiences aim to build a sense of community and trust through exercises focusing on:

COMMUNITY BUILDING - We begin with introductions, agreeing on boundaries for the workshop, sharing names and getting to know the group. Group construction and trust exercises help build a sense of community, as do games and shared storytelling of experiences. Doing exercises together can be fun and also teaches us about others and ourselves.

AFFIRMATION & SELF-ESTEEM - We first have to affirm the positive in ourselves before we can recognize the good in others. Affirmation and self-esteem are foundational to creating a safe environment that promotes positive feedback and trust.

COMMUNICATION - Improving communication skills is essential to our workshop, both assertive methods of expression as well as listening. Learning to communicate assertively and clearly helps break down barriers. Active listening skills are important as the experience of being heard at a deep level can be very rare in our lives—and is critical to conflict resolution.

COOPERATION - There is no perfect community or a group of people who agree on everything, but once sharing starts, you can create and experience the power of cooperation. Reflecting on what we learn from our experiences, and listening to what others have learned, helps us to grow as a person and develop cooperative attitudes that avoid competitive conflicts. Learning to cooperate in a group can take different forms, even without communicating verbally.

CREATIVE CONFLICT RESOLUTION - Conflict is part of life. Without it, life would be static and monotonous. AVP’s key to pre-empting conflict is to creatively transform unhealthy relationships through sharing, caring, improved communication skills and sometimes even surprise and humour. We focus on getting in touch with our inner Transforming Power to resolve conflict. Role plays provide an opportunity to explore this power and to learn new and creative ways to respond to conflicts in our lives.

Organiser AVP London

Organiser of Facing Up to Conflict Level 1 Workshop

The Alternatives to Violence Project (AVP) is an international network of trained volunteers, which delivers workshops for people who want to learn how to manage anger and handle conflict without using, or being the victim of, violence in any of its many forms. We help people address anger and aggression, whether they are perpetrators or victims. We also provide training for people who want to become workshop facilitators themselves.

Workshops draw on participants’ own experiences and definitions of different forms of violence – physical and psychological - and use group exercises, activities, and discussions to explore non-violent ways of dealing with aggression, anger and conflict. Facilitated by trained volunteers, workshops are designed to help develop and strengthen:

  • Listening and communication skills
  • Self-esteem, and seeing the good in others
  • Trust in yourself, and other people
  • Awareness of personal choice and responsibility
  • Respect and empathy
  • Co-operation and community
  • Problem solving and conflict resolution
