About this program

The Men in Change program focuses on preventing the occurrence or recurrence of domestic violence through supporting men to take responsibility for their actions and work toward changing their behaviour.

This program is available to men who want to take a step toward healthier relationships and helps participants to:

  • Learn constructive ways to deal with conflict
  • Identify personal triggers
  • Develop stress management skills and strategies
  • Move past aggression, to identify and express a fuller range of emotions
  • Learn about the things that contribute to domestic violence
Surround yourself with people who are only going to lift you higher.Anonymous
