Men’s Behaviour Change Program
To help address loneliness and feelings of isolation and to help understand family violence, DPV Health offers a 20-week intensive and supportive program that helps individuals understand coercive behaviours and the causes and impact of family violence. The program helps you to make changes to be a better partner/ex-partner or father, overcome feelings of loneliness and isolation, and support your community inclusion.
This program is suitable for men who want to identify, understand, and take responsibility for their abusive behaviours. It is an opportunity to learn new ways to deal with anger without violence, and enhance self-control, self-care, and the safety of your partner and children.
