This experiential workshop begins with Alternatives to Violence Project Empowerment training and continues with Trauma Resiliency to practice personal and cooperative tools to live peaceful lives, discharge emotions and reprocess memories in order to face and heal from traumatic events. The workshop then closes with training on Transformative Mediation with Ann Dusseau and Renee Bove, who has over 20 years of experience. This mediation training helps people solve conflicts in their workplaces, organizations, and community, using basic skills to become a facilitative mediator.
Additionally, a Transformative Mediation Practicum will be held on 19 February for land rights activists, educators, parents, professionals and community leaders and organizers.
Participants are also invited to stay the week after (19-22 Feb) to observe or apprentice in Joglo Preschool and After-School programs.
