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.
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.
If they are ready to do it, it is a life changing experience. The change was unbelievably fast and has continued.

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.
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.
