We will gradually be adding material (most of which we already have available as paper copies in the shape of a pack) to this section. If you have any queries, please get in touch. We have divided the workshops into ‘Nonviolence and nonviolent action’ and ‘Group work and dynamics’.

If you’re wondering where to start, or would like a quick ‘tour’ of the materials, read our ‘Short guide to training materials from INNATE’. See also the training map, listed at the bottom of this section.

2. Group work and dynamics
There is a considerable amount of material on consensus in ‘Consensus for small groups’ (below). But there are many other aspects of group work and dynamics which are important in building effective groups, and, as importantly, not disenchanting those who are already interested and involved. While these may seem at times to be at one move from ‘active nonviolence’ they are actually key to practising what we preach; respect and care for all, including in our everyday working and voluntary lives and commitments and with our ‘own’ people.
