Men's Behaviour Change Program
"Men and Response-Ability Matters"
Our Men's Behaviour Change Program is a 40 Hour face to face Family Violence Behaviour Change program for men who express a variety of abusive behaviours towards their partners and children. Men are encouraged and challenged to think about the choices they make for their own behavior and the impact it has on the lives of women and children.
As part of the program requirements, we will also need to make contact with your partner or ex-partner. This will in no way breach any intervention order you may have. The reason we attempt to contact your partner or ex-partner is to offer support by recommending services if needed or requested. Please note. This is a requirement of ALL Men's Behaviour Change programs.
Please call to see if places are available or look below "Vacancies for this program YES or NO?".
Please Note: Simply paying the course fee does not automatically guarantee you a place.
An intake assessment will also be required.
Our Men's Behaviour Change Program will help you:
- Identify and learn that some of your behavior may in fact be abusive and is never justified.
- Be responsible and accountable for your contribution to family abuse and the consequences it has on your partner or ex-partner and children.
- Learn how you can be the best partner, ex-partner, father and man, you can be.
- Healthy relationships require a little consistent effort. Learn how.
Topics and areas to reflect on may include:
- Family of influence and attachment patterns: how early childhood experiences contribute to your adult hood and relationships.
- Belief systems and attitudes: what really gets in the way of healthy relationships and parenting?
- Abusive power and control in relationships: violence and abuse comes in many forms.
- Effects of violence on women and children: your contribution of abuse and violence on the people you love.
- Emotional regulation: how do you regulate yourself and not rev out of control?
- Identifying and expressing emotions: the healthy way
- How to empathise with people you love: for understanding and connection
- Healthy relationships: what do healthy relationships really look like
- Problem solving: Respectful arguing and negotiating are key
- Communication and assertiveness strategies rather than withdrawal, avoidance or aggressive strategies.
