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 at anytime you have questioned yourself whether the way you handle things could be improved or just that there must be a better way of living for you and your family you should have already done this program. Good thing is, it’s never too late to change!

I would strongly encourage you to do this. Look at it from behaviour change point of view if anger management does not sit comfortable.
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.

Do it! It’s awesome! You learn more about yourself and how you treat others. It is a wake up call.
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.

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.
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 changes in Kevin when having constant support. Reduced yelling which plays a lot with my head.
He has continued to control is anger. It has now been 20 weeks without holes in the wall.

He is much more considerate and I think he may have stopped ‘playing mind’ games with me.

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

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.
The work that he does is brilliant and the way he is tackling the systemic toxic masculinity is vital work. In a primary setting we are not immune from it and see these power imbalance type behaviours being reinforced by dads and ignored or brushed over by mums.
