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.
How would you describe this course to another person who was thinking of doing it? Do It! It’s a great program for understanding emotions and reactions and how to control them.
Adrian - Brighton
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.
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.
He is calmer now; he still does blow off but will easily walk away and now knows how to manage himself.
Gayleen - Pakenham
Educational for abusive people make them accountable for their actions and what they have to do if they ant a better quality of life.
Very good, positive influence helps you evaluate yourself and your situation.
Leanne - Port Melbourne
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.
OMG… Just watched you on sunrise. When you mentioned 'tip-toing' around like on eggs shells, I knew there was something in this for me.
The work that he does is brilliant and the way he is tackling the systemic toxic masculinity is vital work. In a primary setting we are not immune from it and see these power imbalance type behaviours being reinforced by dads and ignored or brushed over by mums.
