John Paul II Justice and Peace Centre (JPIIJPC) in partnership with AGEH-Civil Peace Service organized a 3-days training on Alternatives to Violence Programme (AVP) from 25th to 27th September 2019 for civil society organizations at JPIIJPC offices in Nsambya. The training covered the Basic (1st) level of AVP and was facilitated by experts from AVP-Uganda chapter.
The Alternatives to violence training is a training programme that enables participants to deal with potentially violent situations in new and creative ways. The thinking behind AVP comes from the understanding that conflict is a natural and normal part of life at individual level, work level, family level and community level and that it is possible to learn new ways of responding constructively to it. Therefore by holding workshops in which the participants both reflect on their own experiences, feelings and behaviors in everyday conflict situations, practical ways of dealing with situations of conflicts is very impactful.
Furthermore, participants are helped to move away from violent and abusive behavior by developing positive ways of managing conflict, particularly in interpersonal and work settings. Respect for self and for others also increases. AVP also provides behavioral change that is motivated by the belief in the power of affirmation, communication, trust and community building to transform conflict situations in positive ways that draw on, demonstrate and affirm the good in every human being.
AVP has three types of workshops that include a basic workshop that runs for three days, advanced workshop that runs for three days and a ToT for those who are interested and qualify to train others. AVP workshops use shared experiences of participants, interactive exercises, games and role plays to examine the roles and the ways in which we respond to situations where injustices, prejudice, frustration and anger can lead to aggressive behavior and violence.
Note: Training dates for the Advanced level of AVP will be communicated.
