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 you are hesitant about the program, we all were! It is not that you have nothing to lose; you have everything to gain-it’s a rewarding time that benefits not only you, but your family and friends. It is a life time changing time that you control if you chose to do so.

How would you describe this course to another person who was thinking of doing it? Do It! It’s a great program for understanding emotions and reactions and how to control them.

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).

Manages stress, anger & frustration more effectively. More open about his feelings.
He has continued to control is anger. It has now been 20 weeks without holes in the wall.

He is calmer now; he still does blow off but will easily walk away and now knows how to manage himself.

Well worth it, will strengthen your relationship and help with communication.

Educational for abusive people make them accountable for their actions and what they have to do if they ant a better quality of life.
Excellent for making men aware of what ‘abusive Behaviour’ actually is and excellent for giving them tools to control their behaviour.

Hi Dave, It has been many years since I did your course and saw you on ABC tonight. In those days I was seeing my kids every second weekend and was struggling with anger.
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.
