Family Life provides specialist family violence services using a nationally recognised model involving a holistic family approach.
Within this context, the Men’s Behaviour Change Group program offers men the opportunity to learn and use alternatives to behaving in a violent or abusive manner.
As part of the program, men may be provided with individual counselling assistance prior to and after the group program as well as couple sessions with their partner where appropriate. Contact is maintained with partners during the program to monitor wellbeing and facilitate the transfer of learning into the home and family relationships where this is possible.
Where couples are separated and there is ongoing conflict over children, the counsellor implements strategies to maintain duty of care and promote safety.
