A recent national survey indicated that 78% of people find it hard to understand why women stay in violent relationships and 51% think most women could leave a violent relationship if they wanted to. This shows that a large part of our society believe it’s a woman’s responsibility to leave an abusive man in order to ‘fix’ the problem. This makes little sense to those who work every day with violent and abusive men. It is time to turn our attention to holding the men using abuse responsible for change. “There’s no typical abuser, there’s no typical client, these men come from all walks of life” – David Nugent, Men’s Behaviour Change Counsellor, Call Me Dad.


Call Me Dad Film

Call Me Dad is a story about men who have perpetrated, or are at risk of perpetrating, family violence. At stake is the safety of children and partners, the stability of families, and the power we as a society have to intervene. These men struggle to maintain intimate relationships without resorting to abuse, physical or otherwise. We follow these men over several months, as they attempt to change themselves, and heal fragile bonds with their loved ones.
