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.

Do it! Initially I thought I was in the wrong place, that there was nothing I could learn from this type of forum-some discussion, some issues seemed not to be relevant. But! Some other components are very worthwhile.
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.

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.

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

The course is definately worth doing. It has helped with our relationship ad helped to make us bother happier people.
It is an ideal vehicle for making men to live up to their responsibilities.

I believe for every woman who finds herself in my situation, which seems never ending, would appreciate their partner doing this course. Baby steps but hopefully with time it will happen.

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

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.
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.
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.
