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.
His eyes have begun to open and the defences that blocked communication are crumbling.
Pia - Burwood
Manages stress, anger & frustration more effectively. More open about his feelings.
He has stopped making everything all about him. He is a better husband because he is more aware of when he starts his abuse and stops very quickly.
Deals with situations more rationally.
Leanne - Port Melbourne
Well worth it, will strengthen your relationship and help with communication.
Marie - Epping
It is an ideal vehicle for making men to live up to their responsibilities.
Mary - Wantirna
Educational for abusive people make them accountable for their actions and what they have to do if they ant a better quality of life.
If they are ready to do it, it is a life changing experience. The change was unbelievably fast and has continued.
Sandra - Ferntree Gully
Your partner needs to want to do this program for themselves. Your partner needs to be committed to changing because they themselves want to change.
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.
