Leading a non-violent life is something we aim to achieve and is essential to the ideology of Casa per la Pace. Non-violence promotes and enhances the exchange of skills, communal discussion, discovery of new ways of learning and allows experimentation with different teaching methods and instruments which all contribute to building our knowledge and visions.

Each year we organise different educational workshops for adults which are held in the evenings or on weekends. We use active, socio-emotional and experimental methodology which is predominantly based on group work. Techniques include games, simulations and discussion.

Major topics include:

  • Conflict management
  • Group decision making
  • Survival courses for parents
  • Non-violent communication
  • How we perceive others: stereotypes, prejudices and discrimination
