We invite YOU to Take One Practical Step Toward a Less Violent World
The Nonviolent Conflict Intervention Training lets you explore how nonviolent methods can lessen or prevent onflict-in your daily life, in your community, and around the world.
The one-day workshop is filled with hands-on exercises and role plays that will introduce you to:
Basic nonviolent communication and conflict resolution methods
How you can use these skills when you come across conflict in your daily life
How local and international peace teams use nonviolent strategies in larger conflicts
The curriculum was developed by Nonviolent Peaceforce North America. Your trainers are professional nonviolent conflict intervention trainers.
TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE.........
We believe tht basic training in Nonviolent Conflict Intervention (NCI) should be as common as training in CPR. If someone has a heart attack, CPR can keep that person alive until the underlying cause of the attack can be addressed.
NCI allows an individual, a relationship or a community to survive without physical or emotional injury until the underlying cause of the conflict can be resolved.
This workshop will introduce techniques you can use when faced with a conflict that might turn nasty or violent. By defusing the immediate situation, you create a space which gives everyone time to understand the root of the conflict and to resolve it in a peaceful way.
The Nonviolent Conflict Intervention Training is open to everyone. The sliding scale cost for the workshop is $15-75. The workshop fee covers site expenses, training materials, printing, and snacks. An additioinal $5.00 pays for a vegetarian lunch. Participants may also bring their own bag lunch. Any money left over will be donated to Nonviolent Peaceforce to support the expansion of training programs.
The training is a full day. We ask that participants commit to staying the entire day.
Space is limited. Please RSVP to register for the September 8, 2007 workshop, please contact Debby Park,[masked] or [masked]. Also, contact Debby to be put on a list to receive information about future trainings to be scheduled.
