A program for men wanting to end their use of violence in their relationship
We are committed to stopping family violence in our community, and provide a range of family violence services and programs, including MBCPs.
An MBCP is for men wanting to end their use of violence in their relationships.
The program is designed to help men to stop hurting the people they love most, and in the process become better partners and better fathers.
Family violence describes any type of abusive behaviour used by one person to gain power and control over another. It physically and emotionally harms the person who experiences the violence, as well as the person using violence.
Family violence takes many forms, including:
If you’re not sure whether what’s happening in your family is family violence, you can call us to arrange an assessment, talk about what’s been happening and find out more about how we can help.
More information on each type of abuse is available here.
In your relationship with your partner (or former partner)and your children, are you...
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then it’s time for change.
If you’re ready to take responsibility for the way you’ve been acting, an MBCP can help you become calmer and show you how to relate to your family in healthy and positive ways.
To get started, contact your nearest centre to arrange a time for an assessment, where you’ll meet with a program facilitator for a one-to-one interview. The facilitator will talk with you about what has been happening in your family, tell you more about the program and help you identify which behaviours you want to change.
Program staff will make contact with your partner, ex-partner or immediate family members to offer support and any assistance they might want. We do this because people exposed to family violence also need support.
You can read our MBCP brochure for more details.
