Event Description

AVP Workshop - Making Friends with Conflict

March 26, 2023

1-3 pm


120 E Boyson Road

Hiawatha, IA

Enjoy a hands on, experiential, conflict transformation workshop where you will laugh, share and connect deeply with others while learning ways to reduce conflict in the community, the classroom, the family or at work.

AVP fosters self-esteem, empathy, conflict resolution and other social-emotional goals with powerful impacts in organizations and institutions.

AVP is a facilitated process designed to engage and draw on the wisdom and experience of the group.

AVP works on the individual. AVP is not something we “do” to others. It develops a way of being that changes how we address conflict and how we bring ourselves to the problems and conflicts in our lives.

Treat yourself to this introductory mini-workshop purely for personal growth, or make it a first step toward facilitating additional workshops.

Alternatives to Violence Project (AVP) offers conflict transformation workshops in prisons, the community, or the classroom.

AVP began in 1975 as a cooperative project between incarcerated people, Quakers, and activists in the Civil Rights movement. AVP is practiced in over 60 countries, in schools, prisons, refugee camps, addiction centers, conflict zones; working with gang members, veterans, the incarcerated, school students, indigenous peoples, child soldiers and more – the program has evolved and deepened to be about far more than violence reduction.
