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.
I seriously recommend it! As someone who cane from a family where a short fuse was vital and communication skills did not exist, I found it it extremely helpful in understanding how hurtful it can be to my family without being physically violent. It has certainly the best thing I have done to get in touch with my self.

Level one taught me what to look out for. It gave me new tools to recognize the affect of my behaviour on others.
What did you like most about this program? I like the change I am starting to see in myself and my time with my wife. I want to learn how to communicate better with my whole family to enjoy them more (and vice versa).

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 HUGE CHANGES! A different man to what he had become, I’m starting to look at him as the man I had married so long ago. The depression has lifted.

It is an ideal vehicle for making men to live up to their responsibilities.

Educational for abusive people make them accountable for their actions and what they have to do if they ant a better quality of life.
If they are ready to do it, it is a life changing experience. The change was unbelievably fast and has continued.
Sandra - Ferntree Gully
Excellent for making men aware of what ‘abusive Behaviour’ actually is and excellent for giving them tools to control their behaviour.

Your partner needs to want to do this program for themselves. Your partner needs to be committed to changing because they themselves want to change.
Self-awareness, self-regulation, strategies for change, education on the cycle of violence. An understanding of how his abuse impacts on his partner and the relationship.
