The Alternatives to Violence Project WA (Inc) is a non-religious, not for profit organisation which has run workshops in Perth since 1994. This is an international programme based on over 40 years of experience. We conduct workshops for members of the general community to help participants discover new and creative ways of responding to conflict situations and to build community. Participants find strengths and skills within themselves that will enable them to deal with future conflict or potentially violent situations in a more positive manner.
In the Basic Workshop guided experiences and exercises focus on:
Affirmation, Communication, Co-operation, Community Building and Conflict Resolution
Those who have completed a Basic course are invited to participate in an Advanced level workshop. Some common themes explored are:
Fear, Anger, Self Esteem, Stereotyping, Empathy, Power and Powerlessness and Forgiveness.
There is then a third course in which people can train to become facilitators to help with this valuable work in schools, prisons and the community.
Cost: $120 waged, $60 unwaged (or by negotiation)
Lunch, morning & afternoon teas provided.
