Taking Responsibility - A Course For Men

Taking Responsibility is an eighteen-session group program aimed at men who have been abusive in their relationships and are now ready to work towards building relationships that are respectful, caring and safe.

Who is it for?

Taking Responsibility is an eighteen-session group program aimed at men who have been abusive in their relationships and are now ready to work towards building relationships that are respectful, caring and safe.

What will it be like?

It is common for people to experience some initial anxiety over the prospect of participating in a group, and don’t know what to expect.  Being in a group offers a safe, supportive environment where you can share your thoughts and ideas, and learn from others experiencing similar challenges. Group participants say they feel less alone, isolated and judged, and that groups help in finding new solutions to dilemmas or problems.

Our groups typically have 8-12 participants. The group facilitators provide information, create discussion, allow for self-reflection, goal setting and learning new skills. You will experience a positive, practical approach that builds on strengths within yourself and in your relationships. Participating in a group program is an effective way to gain the confidence to turn negative habits and cycles into positive ones, manage strong emotions constructively and create the future you want.

Key outcomes

  • Clarify your problems.
  • Gain new perspectives.
  • Work through change.

How can it help me?

Participants in the group are provided with an opportunity to begin the process of change by understanding the thoughts, feelings and behaviours that either support change or destroy relationships.

Weekly group sessions will run alongside individual assessment and reviews, as well as follow-up sessions with a Relationships Australia Counsellor.

All clients are required to attend two individual counselling sessions with a Relationships Australia NSW counsellor, prior to admission into this group.

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