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.
