I feel it is a great program and it is great that men can get together and talk over issues affecting men. I like being able to speak freely about my feeling and thoughts with the other guys and I know I am not going to be judged.
What would you tell someone whose partner is asking them to do this program and be hesitant about doing it?
As long as you are honest with yourself and not afraid of any stigma, the program will change your life. You will develop a close bond with a group of men who want to improve their relationships.
If at anytime you have questioned yourself whether the way you handle things could be improved or just that there must be a better way of living for you and your family you should have already done this program. Good thing is, it’s never too late to change!

This program will teach you to listen and understand your partner, your feelings and learn ownership and self control.

He has changed in so many ways – mainly he is respectful towards me and I feel safe with him. I have noticed that he listens to me more, lets me explain how I’m feeling instead of just listening to his.
I have noticed changes in Kevin when having constant support. Reduced yelling which plays a lot with my head.
My partner has never been physically abusive and I have never feared for my safety. However I was not happy with our relationship.
The UTAS Student Living Team would like to thank you both for your recent Let’s Change the Story two-day professional development. This learning experience was invaluable in leading the Student Living Support Officers to develop self-awareness and understanding of attitudes that contribute to domestic violence.
