The Alternatives to Violence Project is a non-religious, not for profit organisation which has run workshops in Australia since 1990. This is an international programme based on over 35 years of experience. Besides workshops in prisons and schools, we conduct them 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.

The Basic Workshop covers themes such as:

  • Affirmation, Communication, Co-operation,
  • Community Building, Trust and Conflict Resolution

All people who have completed a Basic course are invited to participate in an Advanced level.

At this workshop the participants choose, by consensus, the topic which they want the second day of the program to develop.

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.

Donations of $2 or more are tax deductible.
