Men/Tāne: building respectful relationships

This programme is for men who want to build safe, trusting and respectful relationships with their partner and other important people in their lives. We provide a safe, welcoming and non-judgemental atmosphere where men can talk openly with other men and our facilitators about their use of abuse and violence. Our experience is that most men who abuse their partners will change once they’re willing to accept responsibility for their own behaviour and talk openly about it.

For Men who want to learn more about themselves, how to handle their emotions, and value and respect themselves and others. For more information and support for men wishing to make changes in their lives go to Change is Possible and In Your Hands websites.

How This programme supports men to take responsibility for their own actions and helps them identify harmful or taken-for-granted ideas about relationships that often result in violence and abuse. The programme also focuses on positive parenting and fathering skills.

When Group and individual programmes are available – we’ll talk through your options at an initial assessment meeting.
