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.
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.

Believe in yourself! It takes guts to admit you have a problem.

What did you like most about this program? I like the change I am starting to see in myself and my time with my wife. I want to learn how to communicate better with my whole family to enjoy them more (and vice versa).

I have noticed that Brian is able to control his temper a lot more, he is a lot more patient, and a much happier person to be around. He also listens to myself and the kids a lot more.

He is calmer now; he still does blow off but will easily walk away and now knows how to manage himself.

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.

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.
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 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.
