Training for Nonviolent Responses in Social Conflict: A Manual for Trainers.
Lakey, George; And Others
This manual contains an outline for a fifteen hour training course intended for hypothetical peace groups and includes skills and techniques for trainers to transmit to adult participants. The group discovers through role playing that tolerance, openness, non-retaliation policies, and preparation can effectively implement social change. Materials, prepared from trainers' experiences in other non-violent training including direct action and knowledge of philosophy of non violence, emphasize role playing and group dynamics. Five chapters include information on: 1) planning and conducting guidelines for trainers in nonviolent direct action; 2) directing and evaluating role plays; 3) and 4) understanding and teaching function roles of group members and strategy and tactics; and, 5) leading and participating in direct action involving street speaking and leafleting. The material in the manual is suggestive rather than prescriptive. Trainers are encouraged to adapt methods and materials to needs of the particular group. (SJM)
