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! Initially I thought I was in the wrong place, that there was nothing I could learn from this type of forum-some discussion, some issues seemed not to be relevant. But! Some other components are very worthwhile.
Believe in yourself! It takes guts to admit you have a problem.

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.
The course is definately worth doing. It has helped with our relationship ad helped to make us bother happier people.
Well worth it, will strengthen your relationship and help with communication.

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.

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.
My partner has never been physically abusive and I have never feared for my safety. However I was not happy with our relationship.
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.
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.
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.
