A program for men wanting to end their use of violence in their relationships.
We are committed to stopping family violence in our community, and provide a range of family violence services and programs, including MBCPs.
A men’s behaviour change program is a program for men wanting to end their use of controlling and abusive behaviours (including violent incidents) and other problematic behaviour in their relationships.
The program is designed to help men to address hurting the people they love most, develop an improved sense of self, and in the process become better partners and fathers.
Family violence, or domestic violence, is a pattern of behaviour where one person tries to dominate and control the other. It can include a range of behaviours, 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 show you how to relate to your family in healthy and positive ways.
To get started, call your nearest centre to make a time to attend an information session.
At the information session, you will receive information about the program and be able to determine whether it’s right for you.
You can then arrange an assessment session, where you’ll meet privately with a facilitator to talk about what has been happening in your family and relationships, and begin to identify goals related to behaviours you want to change.
Family safety is an important aspect of the program, so our staff will also make contact with your family members to offer them support and assistance they might need. We do this because people exposed to family violence need support.
You can read our MBCP brochure for more details.
