Mens Behaviour Change

Men's Behaviour Change

Who is The Program For?

The Men’s Behaviour Change Program, Commit and Change, is for men who use control or abuse toward a current or former partner. The free program is for men who are starting to think about change. Participants talk, share information, challenge, and support each other to be better men and fathers.

Sometimes a family member, partner, the court, or child protection agency will encourage a man to participate in a domestic violence program, but participation is voluntary AND depends on being assessed as suitable for the program.

Participating in the Commit and Change program can help you work towards a relationship that is based on safety and respect.

What is The Program?

The Men’s Behaviour Change program explores the impact of abuse and violence on partners, children, ourselves, and others. We explore ideas about men’s roles in society and relationships and examine the ideas that help or hurt those relationships. We look at responses to conflict and how we can take responsibility for safety and self. Communication, self-reflection, and dealing with strong emotions are also important elements of the program.

It is a free program.

What is Involved?

Suitability Screening Interview

For you to meet the facilitators and hear about the program. It is also an opportunity for our facilitators to make sure the program is right for you right now.

Intake & Assessment

This is where we talk through everything that has been happening. We talk about your values and what is important to you, and we respectfully talk about abusive behaviors that you have used. We then create a plan for how to take accountability and keep everyone safe (including you).

Group Work

Group work is done over two cycles of ten weeks. We run as close to school terms as we can - so it ends up being about 2 school terms or roughly 6 months. After the first term our facilitators will offer you to do a mid-program review to make sure the program is meeting your needs.

Individual Support Sessions

are also available when needed, giving you the chance to work one on one with a facilitator.
