Joe - I agree with you about misapplying non-violent / non-adversarial 
communication techniques in bullying situations. The victim/retaliator is the 
participant asked to stand-down or avoid the bully while there is little/no 
correction for perpetrator. In non-criminal environments like cohousing, there 
are no consequences.

My background is in positive youth development (asset building) and domestic 
violence prevention (risk factor elimination). I've melded the two approaches 
for conflict resolution in environments where there are no consequences and 
field tested it in a couple workshops, but I need to find a grant!!!

Bullies / violence perpetrators are adept victim-blamers and skillful at 
turning conflicts around by victimizing themselves.
