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).
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 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.
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.
The UTAS Student Living Team would like to thank you both for your recent Let’s Change the Story two-day professional development. This learning experience was invaluable in leading the Student Living Support Officers to develop self-awareness and understanding of attitudes that contribute to domestic violence.
