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 would say if you really love her/them then ask yourself: Do you want to change? Do you want to be respected by your family? You might think you are respected but like I found they were scared to say otherwise. I would also say, you might think you are a great couple.
This program will teach you to listen and understand your partner, your feelings and learn ownership and self control.

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 more controlled and is less angry and sensitive to things I might say, He does not bite back a easily. His coping mechanisms are a lot better.
I have noticed that Brian is able to control his temper a lot more, he is a lot more patient, and a much happier person to be around. He also listens to myself and the kids a lot more.
Natalie - Mt Eliza
He has continued to control is anger. It has now been 20 weeks without holes in the wall.
Sandra - Ferntree Gully
Deals with situations more rationally.
Leanne - Port Melbourne
Brian has learnt to acknowledge when his anger is building up, and is now able to control it. He has also learnt to see things from mine and others point of view.
I can’t praise Dave & Jacqui enough after watching the show last night. I was astounded at the results having tried desperately to get through to my abusive partner who is now on community service for his anger issues and one step away from prison.
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.
