I feel it is a great program and it is great that men can get together and talk over issues affecting men. I like being able to speak freely about my feeling and thoughts with the other guys and I know I am not going to be judged.
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.

I would say if you really love her/them then ask yourself: Do you want to change? Do you want to be respected by your family? You might think you are respected but like I found they were scared to say otherwise. I would also say, you might think you are a great couple.
Pick up the Bloody phone! It was the best move I ever made!

This program will teach you to listen and understand your partner, your feelings and learn ownership and self control.
Darryl - Pakenham
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.
He is calmer now; he still does blow off but will easily walk away and now knows how to manage himself.
