Free Level 1 workshop on the Alternatives to Violence Project (AVP) method. Helps participants to deal with potentially violent situations in creative ways. AVP was developed in 1975 at Green Haven Prison in New York. It has been used in schools, prisons and youth groups in 35 US states and over 45 countries. The workshops draw on the shared experiences of participants, using interactive exercises, games and role-plays, rather than a lecture format. Perfect for teens 16+ and adults. Pizza party for graduation celebration.
