AVP IN NEW SOUTH WALES
Each group within AVP in New South Wales holds different types of workshops. There are AVP workshops available in Sydney, Newcastle and Canberra. Find more information about each group through the button above.
Generally, there are four levels of AVP workshops. In the Basic workshop, the group progressively explores the AVP "building blocks" of conflict transformation, and applies them to realistic scenarios, usually using a role play. The Advanced workshop explores a consensus process and then explores the selected topic to greater depth. The Facilitator Training workshop is for persons that have completed their basic and advanced and are interested in becoming a facilitator of AVP groups. We also occasionally hold Special Topic workshops, such as our two-day Trauma Awareness workshop.
AVP Sydney has been running for more than 25 years. Over the years there have been many workshops, many participants and many facilitators. Since 2001 the heart of the AVP Sydney community has been the First Friday Gatherings. These monthly mini-workshops and social get-togethers have provided the AVP community with a place to meet friends, share a meal and revisit the inspirational nonviolence learning and building blocks of the AVP Transforming Conflict workshops and classes.
