Guide to Transforming Power
The Mid Missouri Alternatives to Violence Project is a group of dedicated volunteers providing workshops in the community and in area prisons. Community Workshops are offered periodically in Columbia, MO. These workshops are experiential and each participant contributes greatly to the workshop's success. The workshops are beneficial for all, regardless of motivation for participation. Previous participants have said that the workshop helped to develop skills of peaceful conflict resolution and in dealing with anger in their personal or work lives.
