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.
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.
I have noticed HUGE CHANGES! A different man to what he had become, I’m starting to look at him as the man I had married so long ago. The depression has lifted.

If they are ready to do it, it is a life changing experience. The change was unbelievably fast and has continued.

Excellent for making men aware of what ‘abusive Behaviour’ actually is and excellent for giving them tools to control their behaviour.

My partner has never been physically abusive and I have never feared for my safety. However I was not happy with our relationship.
Self-awareness, self-regulation, strategies for change, education on the cycle of violence. An understanding of how his abuse impacts on his partner and the relationship.
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.
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.
