Listen to Podcast of David Nugent on ABC Radio National, Life Matters
White ribbon week is the national, male led campaign to end men’s violence against women.
And during White Ribbon week, ABC television is screening "Call me Dad”, a documentary that looks at three men who, because of their violence, struggle to maintain relationships with their partners and families.
“Call Me Dad” focuses on a men’s group in Melbourne called “Heavy M.E.T.A.L” – that is, “Men’s Education Towards Anger and Life.”
It was founded by David Nugent -a counsellor.
He’s been involved in men’s programs for 20 years - and who has been both a perpetrator and victim of domestic violence.
