The Alternatives to Violence Project (AVP) in Newcastle has just developed a flyer with information about AVP. (Click here for a PDF Version.) We hope to increase the number of workshops we offer locally next and are hoping to partner with some family and community services in offering the workshops. Next week we start offering weekly sessions with the Samaritans’ Recovery Point (which supports people recently out of prison or rehabilitation). Hopefully the flyer will help us promote it a bit more.
AVP has come so far since I started facilitating in the 1990s. In particular I have learnt a great deal from having contact with international groups. In the flyer, the graphic for AVP Foundations and Outcomes was based on a leaflet from AVP in Namibia. It is inspiring being part of such an international organisation.
