Taking Responsibility - Men's behaviour change program

Taking Responsibility is an 18-session men’s behaviour change group program for men who’ve committed domestic or family violence in the past, but who are willing to move forward and make positive changes in their behaviour.

Who is it for?

This men’s behaviour change group program is for all men who have demonstrated a commitment to create relationships that are respectful and caring, with the help of peers and trusted experts in the domestic violence field.

We provide a discreet and judgement-free environment for men to explore and discuss their behaviour openly and honestly.

What will it be like?

Over the course of your sessions, our trained group facilitators will provide information, create discussion amongst participants, and allow time for self-reflection. We'll also work through a number of goal setting exercises, to help you stay motivated and focused in achieving positive change.

We aim for the experience to be as positive and practical as possible, while building on strengths within yourself and in your relationships.

Our men’s behaviour change groups typically have 8-12 participants per session. It's normal to experience some initial anxiety over the prospect of participating in a group. But a group setting offers a safe, supportive environment where you can share your thoughts and ideas, and learn from others experiencing similar challenges.

Key outcomes

  • Learn new skills and strategies for dealing with strong emotions constructively
  • Challenge your old ways of thinking and behaving
  • Learn how to develop stronger relationships with those around you
  • Be encouraged and empowered to continue making changes after the group program ends

How can it help me?

Group participants say they feel less alone, isolated and judged, and that their peers have helped them in finding new solutions to dilemmas or problems.

Participating in a group program can also help you gain the confidence to turn negative habits and cycles into positive ones, and create the future you want.

The program also provides support and courses for current/former partners and others who may be affected by the abusive behaviours.
