AVP was introduced in Massachusetts in 1988. Workshops have been held in a dozen state correctional facilities and one federal facility. Nine of these programs are currently active and we are working to start community workshops to go upstream in the river of violence. Eal more effectively with risk and danger. Build good relationships with other people. Communicate well in difficult situations. Be true to yourself while respecting other people. Recognize the skills you already have and learn new ones.
