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.
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.

He has continued to control is anger. It has now been 20 weeks without holes in the wall.

This course requires commitment from any person wanting to do it. It requires commitment to change.
We had tried everything before this program; my husband had seen counsellors, psychologists, doctors and nothing worked. He went to another program which was a lot closer to where we lived and was half the price but after 5 weeks he was complaining how boring it was and how he wasn’t getting anything out of it.
My partner has never been physically abusive and I have never feared for my safety. However I was not happy with our relationship.
Dear Dave and Jaqui, Watching the documentary tonight really hit home for me. I was in tears when I first watched the trailer and have been every time I have showed it to friends and family, even more tears tonight through the whole film.

Congratulations! I have been feeling very depressed about the recent coverage of FV and the constant shaming of men. With no exploration of their (our/my) humanity, their lives, or discussion about whether they can be helped, let alone any thought of whether we actually should help these men, or how.
On Friday night I witnessed a room full of men reflect on their lives in the most humbling way. Every single one of us has acted in anger at some point.
