Online Nonviolence Training

Online Nonviolence Training: Basics of nonviolent tactics for social change and de-escalation

For over three decades, CPT has been equipping its corp with skills for peacemaking to build partnerships and support local nonviolent peacemakers in conflict areas who confront systems of oppression and violence. Built on our wealth of experience, we now offer online workshops for all kinds of organizations.

If you and your community are interested in learning practical skills for community transformation, CPT offers a 2 hour online participatory workshop on the basics of nonviolent tactics for social change and de-escalation. The workshop is built ground-up from an introduction to systems of oppression as a necessary foundation to understand appropriate tactics that do not perpetuate oppressive action.


Our training methods are based on direct education as developed by George Lakey and Training for Change.  This method is rooted in popular education concepts of solidarity, empowerment, and equality.  We seek to root all learning in the reflection of common experience, making it interactive while engaging multiple intelligences and learning styles. We embrace differences and diversity in a group-centered environment while encouraging individual ownership of learning, always being responsive to changing group needs.

Participant Capacity

The ideal size for a CPT workshop or training is around 15 participants. At a maximum, we can work with groups as large as 100.

Generally, we ask for a minimum of 6 people for online training.  With fewer than 6 participants, there is usually not enough synergy for generative discussions or group exercises.


$300 USD for a 2-hour workshop for a group of 10 or less.

  • $25 for each additional person above 10 (not to exceed max 30 people)
  • For groups above 30, please contact the email below for pricing.

*We never want money to be what holds people back from engaging with nonviolence or CPT!  Let us know if finances are an issue; we want to work with you.
