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.

Encourage them to do it. They will get a lot out of this program.
He has changed in so many ways – mainly he is respectful towards me and I feel safe with him. I have noticed that he listens to me more, lets me explain how I’m feeling instead of just listening to his.
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.

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

This course requires commitment from any person wanting to do it. It requires commitment to change.
If they are ready to do it, it is a life changing experience. The change was unbelievably fast and has continued.

We had tried everything before this program; my husband had seen counsellors, psychologists, doctors and nothing worked. He went to another program which was a lot closer to where we lived and was half the price but after 5 weeks he was complaining how boring it was and how he wasn’t getting anything out of it.
I was a bit rushed last night filling in the response forms and I feel I probably did not express myself well enough. Firstly a big thankyou to you and Coby for the whole process, but especially for the role playing, I am hopeful that you can come and get your cameras out of my house: the role playing was a very close to the bone experience.
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.
