The TRANSFORMING CONFLICT subject/modules/units and course were developed for TAFE NSW (Technical and Further Education) and accredited for use by TAFE throughout Australia.

The learning activities were developed by a group of Sydney school, special education and TAFE college teachers. They adapted the group experiential, transformational learning strategies and learning activities from a range of sources including Help Increase the Peace Program (HIPP) and the Alternatives to Violence Project (AVP) for use in classrooms.

During the last thirty years teams of Help Increase the Peace Program (HIPP) and Alternatives to Violence Project (AVP) facilitators have run nonviolence conflict transformation workshops in schools, community groups and prisons in more than 40 countries.

TRANSFORMING CONFLICT relates to both the learning of skills to transform a conflict and the potential of transformational learning that can enable a learner to transform the way they look at conflict and the way they habitually respond to conflict.

Transforming Conflict, Facilitating Nonviolence: a Facilitator's Guide is the 204 page teachers' manual published in 2001 by TAFE NSW. It provides the information, delivery strategies and interactive learning activities to support the teaching of two TAFE NSW modules that were accredited for use by TAFE courses throughout Australia from 2000 to 2007.
  • 4964D Transforming Conflict
  • 4997F Facilitating Nonviolence
In 2007 these two TAFE NSW modules were replaced by the four TAFE NSW units
  • Use Strategies To Transform Conflict - NSWTCOM211A
  • Facilitate Nonviolence and Conflict Resolution - NSWTCOM312A
  • Respond to Signs and Sources of Conflict - NSWTCOM111A
  • Apply Strategies to Resolve Conflict - NSWTCOM311A
TRANSFORMING CONFLICT delivery strategies and interactive learning activities can be used to
  1. Teach any or all of the four conflict resolution/transformation units
  2. Teach these units as a short course on conflict transformation, or
  3. Use these learning activities and experiential learning style in any class on conflict transformation, conflict resolution, communication, nonviolent communication, cooperation, community building, team building, self-esteem and affirmation
