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.

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.
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.
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.
Well worth it, will strengthen your relationship and help with communication.

Educational for abusive people make them accountable for their actions and what they have to do if they ant a better quality of life.
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.
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.
